Polk County Sheriff’s Robbery detectives are seeking the public’s help in identifying a robbery suspect who robbed the CVS Pharmacy located at 2610 US Hwy 92 East in Lakeland.
At 2:44 p.m. on Tuesday, March 2, 2010, the suspect, seen here in video surveillance photos, approached the technician at the pharmacy counter and told her he was there to pick up a prescription.
