Palm Coast Winn-Dixie pharmacy robbery

Detectives in Palm Coast are investigating an armed robbery that netted the robber several hundred prescription pills and occurred at the Winn-Dixie pharmacy on SR-100 yesterday morning.

Deputies responded to the Winn-Dixie Pharmacy around 11:37 a.m. The pharmacist said a white male walked up to the counter and handed him a note demanding oxycodone and cash. The robber said he had a gun, but did not want to use it. No gun was displayed during the robbery.

The pharmacist was handed a plastic bag for the pills and once the robber received them, he left through the store’s front door. No cash was taken during the incident.

Deputies reported the man was believed to be traveling in a dark colored vehicle. He is described as being about 5 feet, 8 inches tall, wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt and sunglasses. He was wearing yellow gloves at the time of the robbery.

“We are hopeful that someone may have seen this man leaving or entering his vehicle on the parking lot. Any information would be of assistance to our detectives,” said Flagler County Sheriff Donald W. Fleming.
