Police: Surveillance video footage helped lead to Walgreens robber arrest

ST. PETERSBURG — St. Petersburg Police say they have arrested a man who robbed a Walgreens on Christmas Eve and was caught on surveillance video.

Lawrence Cennamo, 35, went to the Walgreens at 5420 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. St. N on Dec. 24 with his shirt covering his face. As he walked through the door, the shirt fell from his face in clear view of the surveillance camera, police said.

Cennamo then implied that he had a weapon in his shirt sleeve and demanded an undisclosed amount of money from the store clerk.

Police say several tips led to the Dec. 29 arrest of Cennamo, whose address was listed as 10347 1st Street North Lot #6, in St. Petersburg.
