captured on the store’s video surveillance system.

On Monday, September 1, 2008, at 10 p.m., a male suspect entered
the pharmacy located in the 8500 block of Reseda Boulevard. The
suspect posed as a customer and remained inside the store after the
final closing announcement was made. The suspect simulated a
handgun from inside an athletic bag he was carrying, approached the
store manager and demanded money from the safe. The manager, along
with another store employee, escorted the suspect to the rear
office where they were directed to place money from the safe into a
trash bag then into the athletic bag. The suspect then walked both
