Lawson Most Likely Suspect in 2014 CVS Robbery – Charges Pending

WEEKI WACHEE – Minutes after Friday’s robbery of the CVS Pharmacy on Cortez Blvd, RNRF broke the news and brought you exclusive images of suspect, moments after he was taken into custody. ORIGINAL REPORT

Preliminary information suggested, but was not confirmed, that the suspect 36-year-old Ryan David Lawson was most likely responsible for the September 2014 robbery of the CVS at the intersection of Cortez Blvd and Mariner Blvd.

Today, official released the following report, confirming that Lawson is a suspect in last year’s Robbery. On 8-4-2015 at 5:30 p.m., an unidentified white male entered the CVS Pharmacy located at 9204 Cortez Blvd., Spring Hill.

CVS employees quickly took notice of the man who was wearing a ball cap and a bandana that was covering the lower part of his face.

Employees also noted the man was carrying an unknown object in his right hand.

Shortly after an employee called 911, the man fled the area.

After viewing the surveillance video, deputies noted the man appeared similar in stature to the suspect in the 9-3-2014 armed robbery of the CVS Pharmacy located at 12990 Cortez Blvd., Spring Hill.

On 8-7-2015 at 2:38 p.m., undercover deputies observed a silver minivan pull into the CVS parking lot. Deputies noted the vehicle appeared similar to the one used in the 2014 CVS armed robbery.

On this occasion the man wore a white dust mask in an attempt to conceal his facial features. He was also wearing multiple t-shirts, a ball cap and was carrying a duffel bag similar to the one used in the 2014 armed robbery.

The man entered the store and brandished what appeared to be a black semi-automatic firearm, which was later determined to be a BB gun. He then jumped the counter and demanded employees to lay on the floor.

He ordered the pharmacist to give him all of the Oxycodone.

As the man exited the store with the Oxycodone, he was arrested.

The man was identified as Spring Hill resident David Ryan Lawson W/M DOB/6-9-1979.

He was charged with Armed Robbery and Trafficking in Drugs in reference to Friday’s armed robbery.

Charges are pending regarding the 9-3-2014 armed robbery of another CVS location.

Lawson remains incarcerated at the Hernando County Detention Facility in lieu of a $100,000 bond.

  • Sad way to have a life and to have children also!! Florida should have took charge of the pill situation 10 years back but no they let the pills keep flowing like water and when it started having to many deaths from this pill problem, thats when they opened their eyes and did something about all the pill mills! It is like an intersection without a light, when to many deaths occure thats when they decide to put a light in!! Florida needs to wake up and stop just putting bandaids on open wounds that really need stitches! Slowly but surely this crap worked its way up from pasco county and if this county doesnt do what needs to be done, you will have the same things here. It is not as bad as pasco yet but it will be if the state and county doesnt do what needs to be done!

  • This POS left his 4 year old and his two stepchildren 8 and 10 at home alone to rob a pharmacy at gun point. Father of the year right here folks. I haven’t seen a child neglect charge yet. Hopefully they’ll tack that one on to. WAY TO GO DAVE.
