ST. LOUIS (KMOV) – Authorities have released surveillance pictures of a suspect they say robbed two south St. Louis Walgreens stores over the past four days.
According to police, the suspect first entered the Walgreens in the 7300 block of Gravois around 6:50 a.m. Monday and demanded money.
Police said he showed a pistol inside his waistband and removed several hundred dollars from the register before fleeing the store.
On Wednesday, the suspect walked into another Walgreens in the 3800 block of S. Kingshighway around 9:45 p.m.
Police said he went to the clerk and said “give me all the money, before I have to use this” and lifted the front of his shirt and showed a gun.
The suspect again took several hundred dollars and ran away.
The suspect is described as a white or light-skinned black male. He’s about 18 to 25 years, 5-feet-6 and 145 pounds.
