Police seek two men after Walgreens robbery in St. Petersburg

ST. PETERSBURG — Police are searching for two men who robbed a 24-hour Walgreens pharmacy early Tuesday.

The men approached the store on 5767 38th Ave. N with shirts draped around their faces, St. Petersburg police said.

They first approached the store at 3:18 a.m. but retreated when a van entered the parking lot, police said. After retreating several times, they entered at 3:24 a.m.

Once inside, one of the men jumped across the counter and began ransacking the shelves. The other man accosted three of the store clerks.

Police said one the suspects had a gun, but did not specify which suspect.

The men forced the employees to remove the cash drawers from the register before leaving on foot.

Police urge anyone with information to call at (727) 893-7780.
