Molino Pharmacy ‘Underwear’ Armed Robber Gets 25 Years In Prison
November 16, 2012
A Molino man that robbed a local pharmacy in 2010 while wearing underwear on his head is headed to prison.
Joseph Daniel Flowers, now 58, was sentenced Thursday by Judge Gary Bergosh to a mandatory minimum 25 years in state prison. Flowers was convicted in October 2012 by an Escambia County Jury of robbery with a firearm, three counts of trafficking in illegal drugs, and three counts of possession of controlled substances for the September 20, 2010, holdup of Scott’s Pharmacy on Highway 29.
Flowers robbed the pharmacy at gunpoint while wearing a blue bathrobe, slippers, yellow kitchen gloves and boxer shorts on his head.
During the course of the robbery, Flowers took more than 80 prescription bottles containing thousands of dollars worth of narcotics. After he exited the pharmacy, he ran behind the building where he was picked up by co-defendant Krystal Lynn Collin.
Witnesses inside the store were able to identify Flowers based on the fact that he was a frequent customer of the pharmacy.
Collins, the getaway car driver in the robbery, was previously found guilty in July 2011 of armed robbery with a firearm and a half dozen felony drug charges. She was sentenced to 25 years in prison.
