Walgreens Robbery Suspect Behind Bars, Fled After Pharmacists said “Get out”

LAND O’ LAKES (PASCO) – On Friday, RNRF broke the news of a brazen armed robbery attempt at the Walgreens Pharmacy on Cortez Blvd. ORIGINAL REPORT

The suspect avoided capture for nearly a week but officials now say they have the man responsible for the robbery behind bars in Pasco County.

According to reports, Deputies responded to the Walgreens Pharmacy around 10:00 p.m. Friday, where they learned that the suspect entered the store, unpackaged a knife from the home goods aisle, and then headed for the pharmacy. Surveillance video shows the man jump over the counter, threaten the pharmacist with the knife, and yell “Give me your bottles.” The pharmacist yelled back at the suspect to get out of the pharmacy, which he complied and fled the store.

The suspect fled in a black BMW, later confirmed to be in the area of the Wawa gas station 10 minutes prior to the robbery attempt.

After recovering a palm print from the pharmacy counter, investigators were able to positively identify the suspect as 45-year-old Justin Curtis Lee of New Port Richey.

On Monday Lee was taken into custody at his home and transported to the Land O’ Lakes jail.

Lee faces charges of attempted armed robbery and retail theft.

He remains behind bars at this time, held on a $51,000 bond.

  • Wow… The last time I got in trouble was because he called the cops on me after shooting at me…. Best thing that ever happened. I went to jail and was offered a deal to get help. I took that deal thinking I was just going to fake it till I make it, but things changed, and I really did get the help that I needed. Now I just got married last week, I’m going to school for engineering; I have my own place, I have money saved up (not very usual for a junkie), and I’m looking to buy a house for the first time. The thought still lingers in my mind, and I’m sure it always will, but people can change. I pray the state gives him the same opportunity that they gave me.

  • Fair enough… Maybe mixed breed was totally not what I meant.. inbred? Is that better? Lol. Either way… what a waste of a life. Too bad people can’t just choose to be the change the world needs instead of adding to the crime statistics. Smh

    Wednesday, 31 August 2016, 10:37 pm
    • inbred?? no no honey he is far from it!!! you can just stfu and have a seat with the rest of the clowns and leave my husband alone.. no one is perfect and you’re probably sitting there eating fukin bonbons wishing you had someone who loved you!!!

  • Linds , an apology is enough but my last comment was posted before your apology. I didn’t see it until now. I am not a lover of drama..

    Wednesday, 31 August 2016, 7:07 pm
  • I’d like to know how your allowed to use the DAVID system without being actively in pursuit of this person or case? Isn’t that a violation of it. You are not allowed to use it for personal use.

    Wednesday, 31 August 2016, 6:08 pm
  • Ok guys. Time to cue up the talking points. Are you ready? Good. Repeat after me.

    1. This guy will be walking the streets in no time after some judge indiscriminately lowers his bond!!!!

    2. I can’t believe our gubmint doles out benefits to this guy. Don’t they know that all people receiving benefits are really criminals scamming the system?

    3. He’s been commiting crimes since he was a babe. Shoulda just given him a life sentence at 12 when he was caught walking across Old Man Johnson’s lawn.

    4. He has to be from NY or NJ. Seriously, they should all just stay up there because nobody from our sweet little town would ever think of breaking the law.

    5. Its all the libruls fault. Always is.

    6. If every single person in Hernando would just own a firearm and keep it on their hip at all times then stuff like this would never ever happen. In fact nothing bad would.

    7. *** Not a talking point, but more like a rule of thumb.***

    Automatically attack the person who presents any sort of differing viewpoint. DON’T attack their point of view. DO attack the person.

    Ok, what are you guys waiting for??? Let’s all responsibly comment!

  • Yea, and you’re a schmuck.. apparently a drama loving schmuck. An apology isn’t enough you have to keep going and going.. Something tells me you’ll go at it all day.. Like I said, wasn’t meant for race. Totally taken out of context.

    Wednesday, 31 August 2016, 11:11 am
  • Where I’m from it means something totally different. Wasn’t meant as a racist term. That’s that. But u definitely see where it could be interpreted as such. My apologies.

    Wednesday, 31 August 2016, 10:24 am
  • Thank you Julio.. I don’t know what world “linds” lives in, but mixed breeds has nothing to do with parenting.. And all to do with race. Sorry for the cracker remark but linds, you are what you are..

  • Work at Walgreens transferred here from Massachusetts and i wonder if that pharmacist will get written up, reprimanded, or even fired, being a supervisor myslef we are trained to just give them what they want its not worth your life or injury to urself or urfellow co workers, i mean im all for standing up to them depending on the situation at hand but back home in ma, my manager was fired for following a robbery suspect outside to get the make and model of car and plate number, everybody was in disbelief when district came down and came up with that decision, but idk if i would tell them no being in that confined space in the pharmacy, its not the biggest area and close quarters, that pharmacist was definitely brave give them that but Walgreens being a multi billion dollar company the suspects can have what ever they want cus i wanna go home to my kids amd wife at the end of my shift.

  • Darrin, it happened in Hernando Co. at the Walgreens at Mariner and 50. He was later found and arrested IN PASCO COUNTY and jailed there…. DUH!!! READ and re-READ the story to get it right. Smh…

  • Mix breeds is a term for bad parenting. Nothing to do with race. Not everything is about race. Calling Linda a cracker seems racist.. thats not nice.And whose linda?

    Tuesday, 30 August 2016, 10:05 pm
    • it will be dropped to a lesser charge and he gonna do some time especially if he put anyone in fear

      Wednesday, 31 August 2016, 6:38 am
    • That’s not what mix breeds means. It is a racist term. Just like mixed breeds with dogs, it’s exactly what it says…mixed breeds. It has NOTHING to do with parenting. It’s MIXED breed, not mix breeds.

      mixed breed

      A mixed-breed is a person of unknown ethnicity or a multi-ethnic person.

      That mixed breed girl is beautiful, being African, European, and Asian all rolled into one exotic woman!

  • If this occurred in Pasco why show Hernando Sheriff photos. Unless he is the same one that robbed the Hernando store. Where is the correlation in the news story.

  • Hey tom are you sure he is 45 years old? NCIC lists him as 29 for CASE#: 2016-24697HCSO
    Even put it through DAVID and it came back 1987.

    Tuesday, 30 August 2016, 8:00 pm
  • To Linda .. What do you mean by “mix breeds”? I am going to take a guess that you are a racist cracker.. Moving on to other things, he is 45 years old? He sure doesn’t look like it.. They say you age quicker if you are a drug abuser? He must be an exception ..

    Tuesday, 30 August 2016, 7:37 pm
  • Great job by all of the LEO’s involved. Hope the judge keeps him locked up for a very loooooooong time.

    Tuesday, 30 August 2016, 7:26 pm
  • That’s why they call it dope.

    Tuesday, 30 August 2016, 6:57 pm
  • Seems to not be a coincidence. Pasco county is nothing but junkies and mix breeds. Lol. What in the world. Every crime committed, the resident is from Port Richey, New Port Richey, or Hudson. Geeze. Waste of life.

    Tuesday, 30 August 2016, 6:47 pm
  • Excellent bond Pasco County, good job to all. Including the pharmacist !!

    Tuesday, 30 August 2016, 5:07 pm
    • Hey doc ,hang the “”piece of “. That’d your anwser not knowing anything about the circumstances .
      I’m sure you would say the same thing if it was someone that was kin to you or a best friend that relapsed on a xanax habbit. I understand you don’t get a second chance to make a first impression. So my first impression of you is your a judgememental sucker!

      Sunday, 25 September 2016, 3:52 am
    • Hang you’re stupid self I can mail you the products to do so 🙂 Thanx

      Friday, 2 February 2018, 7:15 pm
  • Well, another New Port Richey resident. Possibly a relative of the gang banging princess involved in the drive by shooting there this past weekend.
    Western Pasco County appears to be the garden spot of violence in the State of FL.
