Caught on video: Man stops robbery at pharmacy

FLORIDA (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A man who was at the right place at the right time says he does not think he's a hero after stopping a pharmacy robbery in progress.

Police in Florida say 65-year-old Jeffrey Johnson walked into a CVS early Saturday afternoon with what appeared to be a gun in his pocket.

He threatened the clerk with the gun, demanding prescription drugs.

That's when Janos Jurisoo, who was stopping by to get some water, stepped in and stopped him.

After the man was taken down police were called.

Jurisoo says he does not believe he is a hero.

Police say putting his life on the line to keep the community safe says otherwise, but they also recommend that others do not repeat his actions.
