ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) – A popular store in the Central West End was robbed for the fifth time since April, according to police.

In the latest robbery at the CVS on Lindell Boulevard, police say the suspect was stealing several items Sunday. A security guard allegedly tried to block the doors so the suspect could not get away.

The suspect then allegedly pulled a screwdriver from his waistband and threatened the guard. Surveillance images have not been released.

Authorities said one man could be responsible for several robberies.

After the robberies in April at the same CVS, the store sent News 4 a statement saying they were increasing the hours security guards were on duty.

But, during the most recent incident, the guard was not able to deter the criminal.

Police said they are searching for the suspect(s) in several of the CVS robberies.

Anyone with information about any of the robberies should contact police.
