Publix snatch-and-grabs may not be related, police say

Back on November 15, police say two women snatched a 75-year-old's wallet from her pocketbook while she shopped at a Publix in St. Petersburg. Then on November 23, inside a Publix on North Dale Mabry, a very similar scene played out. 

Knife-wielding man shot by St. Pete police

It was just before 1 p.m. when police say they received a call about a suspicious man, armed with a large knife, pacing along the walkway over Interstate 275 at 27th Avenue N.
