Molino Pharmacy Robbery Suspect Back Behind Bars

November 16, 2010

The Molino man charged in connection with the September armed robbery of a Molino Pharmacy is behind bars again, over a week after a judge issued a warrant for his arrest.

Joseph Daniel Flowers, 56, was booked into the Escambia County Jail Monday night where he was being held without bond.

According to Escambia County Circuit Court records, Judge Ronald Swanson revoked bond for Flowers and issued a failure to appear warrant for his arrest on October 4. He was originally charged with robbery with a firearm, grand theft, possession of a firearm in pharmacy, aggravated battery and wearing a mask while committing a felony.

The grand theft and wearing a mask while committing a felony charges were dropped, while multiple drug possession charges were filed against Flowers.

Flowers was charged with robbing Scott’s Pharmacy on September 20 while wearing a bathrobe, slippers, yellow kitchen gloves and underwear on his head.

Flowers is also facing charges for the alleged battery of his accomplice — Krystal Lynn Collins — with a two liter bottle of Coke. Collins, 24, was also charged in connection with the robbery; deputies believe she was the getaway car driver. On Monday, his attorney entered a plea of not guilty on his behalf to the battery charges.

    ‘yea he is about 4 fries short of a happy meal.”

    I’ll have to remember that – never heard it before.

    amanda, seriously……this guy knows right from wrong. Being not so bright does not classify as a mental illness. He belongs in jail for sure.

    “…wearing a bathrobe, slippers, yellow kitchen gloves and underwear on his head…”
    ” battery of his accomplice. . . with a two liter bottle of Coke. ..”

    I get the feeling that this guy’s tree is running out of leaves. His no-show may have been from embarrassment, or perhaps his Edsel is on the fritz.

    So ANG This is compliance….
    Oh yes he had to get to a lawyer first to turn himself in. So he could further cost us tax payers and plead not guilty

    Turn himself in? Oh yeah,I forgot about that. I guess ANG had the wrong day posted.

    Didn’t I not read on here last week that he was turning himself in last week!! It taken him over a week to figure out that he had to go directly to jail and do not pass go, and not to collect $$$$!
