Three charged with robbing man of OxyContin, cash at Gulfview Square Mall

PORT RICHEY — Three men were arrested Sunday afternoon after a drug dealer they robbed called authorities to report that his stash had been stolen.

A man called the Sheriff's Office to say he went to Gulfview Square Mall to sell OxyContin to three people, according to reports. The man said he climbed into one of the suspects' cars, where someone put a gun to his head and demanded money and the drugs.

The man gave the robber $509 and the pills and left the scene in a car headed south on U.S. 19. He said he was followed by the car carrying the man who stole from him.

Deputies investigated, and three suspects were found behind a closed business nearby, carrying loaded handguns.

Arrested were: George Summerhill, 24, of 6735 Hammock Road in Port Richey, charged with robbery with a deadly weapon; Cuong Huynh, 22, of 25313 Nesting Way in Crosslane, W.Va., held in lieu of $55,000 bail on charges of robbery with a deadly weapon and possession of marijuana; and Kyle Anderson, 22, of 503 Morgan Town Ave. in Barnsville, Ohio, charged with robbery with a deadly weapon.

All three are being held in the Land O'Lakes jail.
