Man pretends to buy gum, robs Broad Street Walgreens

Posted: Updated:

A thief pretended to buy a pack of gum at a Henrico Walgreens, but instead robbed the store.

The man entered the Walgreens near Libbie Avenue and Broad Street on Dec. 22 around 8:10 p.m. and put some change on the checkout counter to pay for a pack of gum. When the clerk opened the register, the thief grabbed money out of the cash drawer and took off, according to Henrico Police.

The man never showed a gun and no one was injured. However, police are now releasing a surveillance image in the hopes of catching the suspect.

The suspect is described as a 30 to 45 year-old black man with a thin build. He is bald and was wearing a zip-up jacket and blue jeans.

Anyone with information regarding this offense is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at (804) 780-1000.
