    Orange Blossom Trail pharmacist kills armed robber

    April 1, 2009

    A pharmacist shot an armed robber dead Tuesday at a drugstore off South Orange Blossom Trail, the Orange County Sheriff's Office said.

    It was at least the fourth time this year that a robber was killed at a Central Florida business and was the second drugstore holdup that ended in death.

    The shooting happened about 5:15 p.m. at JR Pharmacy, 2160 Whispering Lakes Blvd.

    The man came into the shop with a handgun and, after a brief confrontation, was shot to death, sheriff's spokesman Jim Solomons said. Investigators would not release names, where the body was found or what the man tried to steal.

    The drugstore caters to the heavily Hispanic clientele in the neighborhood, customer Evette Luciano said.

    "They're very honest people," she said of the owners.

    "They go out of their way to help the customers," said her twin sister, Jeanette Luciano, who also lives nearby.

    Evette Luciano said she spoke to one of the partner's wives and was told that the shooting happened in the front of the store while two owners were in the back. The worker who did the shooting formerly worked across the street at Walgreens, customers said.

    Several customers said they thought three partners owned the store, including the man who shot the robber.

    But corporate documents show only two names. Neither man was the shooter, Evette Luciano said. Reached at home, Joshua Adedoyin and Rojer Tewari would not comment. They are listed on documents as "managing members" of the business.

    There was another armed robbery at JR Pharmacy in April 2007, Solomons said. There are no laws preventing people from defending themselves with guns at home or at work.

    "The Legislature has empowered people to protect themselves," said sheriff's Cmdr. Paul "Spike" Hopkins. "People are tired of being victims."

    There have been 25 calls to law enforcement from JR Pharmacy since 2003, but most were routine, Solomons said. Details were not immediately available, and it's not clear when the shop opened.

    On Feb. 7, a security guard shot and killed an armed robber at The Medicine Shoppe in New Smyrna Beach. Investigators said the guard, a retired law-enforcement officer, was justified. The robber had pointed a gun at a pharmacist and demanded oxycodone pills.

    In January, a customer at a carwash on South Orange Blossom Trail shot a suspected robber dead. The same week, a customer shot to death a man who police said was trying to rob a Kangaroo Express in Ocoee.
    So, where was the article that claimed there were no self defense-related shootings?

    Man the economy is killing everyone. Even armed robbers can't make a living these days.
    "Run for your life from the man who tells you that money is evil. That sentence is the leper's bell of an approaching looter. So long as men live together on earth and need means to deal with one another-their only substitute, if they abandon money, is the muzzle of a gun."

    There's been a long string of pharmacy robberies here lately. Hopefully this will slow 'em down a bit!

    Yay for the pharmacist! And of course, the whole OBT area has been going downhill for ages. (one of the reasons we moved from that area)

    Maybe now the criminal element will think twice, knowing their vics may be armed?

    That's a fine quote! Bravo Zulu on the pharmasist for taking care of business and making it home!

    And the truth!!! The more often scumbags get spiked like this, who think that they can bully their way to having anything they haven't got the honesty, integrity, or gumption enough to work for, just because they have a gun, the better for all. And hopefully other scumbags will start to get the message, as well.

    I used to live in Wauchula which is about 45 minutes south of Lakeland on Hwy 17, and about the same distance north of Arcadia. Way out in the middle of grove country and not close to any city that an outsider would recognize.

    It seems like there were always these deranged looking drifters that would go though town ... people going across the state who needed to stay off the major highways. The town people were good honest folks but you'd get some dirtbags wanting to go from their ghetto in Tampa to their cuz'ns ghetto in West Palm and it seems like they'd try to really make a point that they were bringing hip-hop city culture to us hayseeds ... as if we think that not wearing a belt and having your pants fall to your knees is "high culture". But that's the way it is there.

    I dreaded going to Orlando, especially the aptly named "Martin Luther King Drive" which of course was like driving through a gauntlet of hookers, low lifes, thugs, and undesirables. I'm sure that area accounted for a huge percentage of Orlando's crime, plus the crime that they export to other areas and bring back to "MLK" 'hood.

    I'm glad the perp got his just reward.

    I can't get past this.

    There are no laws preventing people from defending themselves with guns at home or at work.
    I hope everything pans out. I'm glad no victims were injured.

    Ahh, the famous SOBT, aka US441 aka Hooker Haven Boulevard.. Orlando's Orange Blossom Trail was a decent area 50 some odd years ago. About what you would expect from a major north south US highway. Like Much of the area, it owes its demise to Disney and air conditioning.
    That area was my territory in the '60s through the '90s.
    In the '60 we frequented some nice restaurants in the area. By the late '90s I tried to stay out of there.
