Video Released of Robbery to Walgreens Store with Suspect Wearing Distinctive Sweater
Location; Walgreen Store at 5420 Dr. MLK Street North, St. Petersburg
Suspect Description: B/M, late teens to early 20's, approximately 5'6" tall, black mask, black glove on the left hand & black pants armed with a black
semi-automatic handgun. The suspect was wearing a rather distinctive bulky hooded alpine type sweater, tan in color with a green (possibly trees), white
& black design around the chest, upper arms, cuffs and bottom. The suspect was wearing a two tone backpack which he used to carry the money taken from the store.
On Sunday, July 24th, 2011 at about 4:30 a.m. the lone suspect entered the front door of the store armed with a semi-automatic handgun and immediately
approached the assistant manager and demanded to be taken to the safe.
The assistant manager was escorted at gun point to the office where the suspect made him open a safe and a cash drawer, and then lie face down on the floor. The suspect removed the cash which he placed in his backpack. He then forced the assistant manager out of the office to the rear of the store where he made him open the rear exit. The suspect then had the assistant manager lie back down on the floor while he made his escape out the north rear exit.
A witness reported seeing a black Lincoln Navigator leaving the area at a high rate of speed south on Dr. MLK Street North with its lights out at around
the time of the robbery, but is not known for sure if it this vehicle was actually involved.
Although the suspect was masked, detectives are hoping that someone may recognize the suspect's distinctive sweater and provide them with his identity.
