Robbers Steal Medication at CVS Pharmacy

Los Angeles: On June 26, 2008, at around 3:45 a.m., two suspects entered a CVS store at 6360 W. 3rd Street and took medication from the store’s pharmacy shelves.

After entering the store, the suspects proceeded immediately to the pharmacy in the rear. One of the suspects, wearing a dark-grey, long-sleeve button-down shirt, brandished a handgun and ordered the pharmacist to get down on the floor. The other suspect, wearing a white long-sleeve, pullover shirt, then proceeded to the area where the prescription drugs were stored and removed sleeping medication from the shelves.

Both suspects have been described as Black males in their early 20s and should be considered armed and extremely dangerous.



The LAPD is requesting the public’s help in locating these suspects. Anyone with information is asked to call Detectives Avila or Wilbur at the Wilshire Community Police Station, 213-922-8205. On weekends and after-hours, calls may be directed to a 24-hour, toll free number at 1-877-LAWFULL (529-3855).
