Trinity shoe store robbery results in precautions at two Pasco schools

TRINITY — Pasco deputies are searching for a man who robbed a Payless Shoe Source at gunpoint, putting two nearby schools on lockdown for a couple of hours.

The man entered the store at about 10 a.m. Tuesday at Mitchell Plaza, 3034 Little Road, gave the clerk a note and left with an undisclosed amount of money, according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office report. The robber had a gun and fled west on foot.

Deputies put Seven Springs Middle School and J.W. Mitchell High School on lockdown until about noon. Both schools are now back to normal operations.

The search for the suspect continues, though. He was described as a black male, about 30 to 35 years old, about 5 feet 7 inches tall, with a slim build, wearing a white shirt, black pants and a black hat. He was unshaven and wearing glasses.

Anyone who may have seen the suspect is asked to contact the Pasco Sheriff's Office immediately.
