UNION — At 1:54 p.m. Wednesday police in Union responded to robbery in progress at the CVS located at 124 S. Main St.
By the time police arrived the suspect had already fled the scene, according to Union Police Capt. Chris Allen.
“An Englewood detective observed a vehicle matching the description of the one used in the robbery, which was a silver Nissan with California plates being driven by a black male along with a black male passenger,” Allen said.
The vehicle fled south on Main Street and the Englewood detective tried to catch up with the Nissan but was unable to as it traveled at a high rate of speed.
“A black male went into CVS with his hood up, with dreadlocks in front of his face and went back to the pharmacy where he handed the pharmacist a note describing exactly what medications he wanted,” Allen said. “She opened the safe, got the medications for him. He made a threat of a weapon but never displayed it. Once she got the medications she placed them in a bag, handed him the bag and he took off out of the store and jumped into the car and it fled south.”
According to Allen, the robbery matches the same MO as robberies that have occurred at other Dayton area CVS stores.
Dayton Police also spotted the vehicle and attempted to stop it, but Allen was not aware of the status of that pursuit.
