Robber Wears Painter Disguise

Brandon, FL - A suspect who robbed a Publix grocery store on Monday wanted employees to think he was there to paint.

"He had on like a white painter's outfit with the booties, mask over his face, gloves, the whole nine yards," said Debbie Carter, spokesperson for the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office.

The only color he had in mind, however, was green. Deputies said the outfit was merely a disguise.

"He walked up to the service counter and asked to see a manager. When the manager got there, he brandished a gun and told him to open the safe," said Carter.

It happened at a Publix in Brandon just before 8:30 Monday morning. The store is undergoing renovations inside.

No one was hurt during the robbery, but the suspect did get away with cash. The getaway vehicle is said to be a mid-2000's silver Lexus.
