On Wednesday, July 30, Polk County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested Johnny Couch, 56, of 1034 Helena Lane, Lakeland and charged him with two counts robbery just a short time after he allegedly committed a second robbery at the same CVS pharmacy.

According to his affidavits, the first robbery happened around 3:25 a.m. on Friday, July 4. An unidentified white male suspect wearing a boonie-style hat walked up to the pharmacist at the CVS located at 5010 S. Florida Ave., Lakeland, and handed the pharmacist a note listing the specific prescription drugs he wanted – also written on it were the phrases “this is a robbery” and “I have a gun.”
