Guy in hoodie, sunglasses robs Palos Verdes Rite-Aid Sunday afternoon

A man, wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and sunglasses, robbed a pharmacist of an undisclosed amount and type of drugs from the Rite-Aid store in the Palos Verdes Mall Sunday evening.

Walnut Creek Lt. Tim Barrett says the robber, described as a 6-foot-tall man in his 20s, approached the pharmacist just before 6 p.m. The robber handed the pharmacist a note, saying he had a gun and demanding drugs.

The pharmacist apparently handed over whatever the robber wanted, and he fled the store, which is located in the mall at the intersection of Pleasant Hill and Geary roads.

No one was hurt in the robbery. Of course, police searched the area, but unfortunately didn't find the robber.

Anyone with information on this robbery should call the Walnut Creek Police Department at: (925) 943-5844.


Just there... said...

Oh, God. I was there just before then. I'll have to go check my receipt. How awful. I even had a nice conversation with the store clerk about what a neat pen she was using.

I can't imagine that I would remember anything though. Nothing looked strange in the area at that time.

Keep it in Walnut Creek, please. Gotta clean up that Palana Court area.

Palos Verdes is a community in Southern California. I'm sure you meant to say Palo Verde mall.
