St. Petersburg police arrest man they say demanded cash, pills from CVS

ST. PETERSBURG — Police have arrested a man they say robbed a CVS Pharmacy at gunpoint earlier this week.

Detectives say Zachary Perrine, 21, of St. Petersburg walked into the pharmacy at 8001 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Street N just after midnight Wednesday.

He approached a clerk, showed his gun and demanded cash and Oxycodone, authorities said. He fled with just some cash when a pharmacist told him the store didn't stock the drug.

Police released a surveillance video of the incident and arrested Perrine later that night on charges of armed robbery and drug possession. Records show he is also facing charges from a home invasion robbery case from August 2011.

Perrine remained in the Pinellas County Jail on Friday in lieu of $155,000 bail.
