Police: Two men steal cash, alcohol from Tarpon Springs store

TARPON SPRINGS — With the hoods of their sweatshirts pulled over their heads and masks across their faces, two men robbed a liquor store at gunpoint Friday, police said.

Around 10:30 p.m., the men walked into Liquors of Tarpon, 604 S Pinellas Ave. One man showed a dark handgun and ordered the clerk to open the register, police said. The other man took an undisclosed amount of money from it.

On their way out, the men grabbed a bottle of vodka and left in an unidentified vehicle, police said.

The other robber was also around 5-foot-1, weighing between 140 and 150 pounds. He wore a gray Ohio State University sweatshirt. Both sported white tennis shoes.

Police were still searching for the suspects Monday and asked anyone with information to call Tarpon Springs detectives at (727) 938-2849.
