They should have a picture or two of the perpertrator walking out the door. Hopefully somebody walking in as the guy was walking out--got a good view of this person.

I am surprised that where this store is located, that this has not happened several times before.

Funny 'cause that CVS is usually robbing its customers. Go to Walgreens, prices are better but the cashiers are usually backed up.
