Las Vegas police need help finding CVS robber

Las Vegas police are seeking the public’s help in identifying a man and a car connected to a northeast robbery.

On Sept. 11, at 8:20 p.m., a man entered a CVS pharmacy at 6705 E. Lake Mead Blvd. and then ran out of the pharmacy with an item. When an employee tried to take back the item, he pointed a firearm at the worker.

Police said the robber, described as a black man in his 20s or 30s, fled in a gray Jeep Cherokee.

The man was last seen wearing a purple shirt with a white emblem in the center, black pants with a thin light stripe down the side, white sandals, black socks, a long necklace, a dark wristwatch and a yellow bracelet on his right wrist and a white bracelet on his left wrist. He is said to have a thin build, 6-feet to 6-feet-2-inches tall and has short, dark hair.

Police said the robber was with another person who appeared to have acted as a lookout. This person is described as a black male, 5-feet-6-inches to 5-feet-9-inches tall. He was seen wearing a tan shirt and in dark-colored pants and shoes.

Anyone with information should call Metro at 702-828-3591. Or to remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555 or www.crimestoppersofnv.com.
