Lutz, Florida -- Hillsborough deputies are searching for the man who broke into a Walgreens pharmacy twice in a single night.

The burglar first smashed the front glass door of the Walgreens located at 3890 Van Dyke Road in Lutz at 1:30 a.m. on Christmas Eve.  At that time, the burglar took a case of Budweiser, two cases of Bud Light beer and two cartons of Marlboro Special Blend cigarettes.

Apparently not content with his loot, the burglar returned at about 3:18, this time smashing the window in the pharmacy area to gain entry.

As the suspect was trying to remove pain medication, the alarm was activated and the lights in the store turned on.  The burglar then ran out of the story. 

The suspect is described as a white male, 30 to 40 years old, 5'11" - 6'2" and 170-190 pounds with a medium build and brown hair. He was last seen wearing a black jacket with a hood, blue jeans and white athletic shoes.

Anyone with any information reference the suspect is asked to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office at 247-8200 or anyone with any information regarding the identity and whereabouts of this suspect and who wants to be eligible for a cash reward is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS (8477), report anonymously online at or text "CSTB plus your tip" to C-R-I-M-E-S (274637).
