INDIANAPOLIS - Police offered up to a $1,000 cash reward for information that leads to an arrest in a string of pharmacy robberies at three Indianapolis CVS stores.
Detectives said the first robbery was reported on Feb. 21 at the CVS at 2029 West Washington Street.
The second robbery was reported on March 2 at the CVS at 5611 Georgetown Road.
The third robbery was reported on March 13 at the CVS at 3350 North High School Road.
Investigators said the person of interest entered the pharmacy through the front door, went directly to the pharmacy area and passed a note demanding controlled substances. When the pharmacy employee stepped away from the area, the suspect fled out the front door. It is believed the same person may be responsible for committing robberies in the area.
Police also suspect the same person was involved in all three incidents.
The person of interest is described as a black man with a light complexion with a goatee, between 18-22 years of age weighing 130 to 150 pounds. He was last seen wearing a black jacket with a hood, a red cap, dark jeans, a dark glove on his right hand and black shoes.
Anyone with information about this attempted robbery or the person of interest is asked to call the Central Indiana Crime Stoppers Hotline at (800) 222-TIPS (8477) or (317) 262-TIPS (8477) or text “IndyCS” to CRIMES (274637).
