Armed robber hits pharmacy in north F'ville

An armed robbery occurred Thursday at the Rite-Aid pharmacy on North Glynn Street in Fayetteville when a man asking for help while shopping later produced a handgun and demanded money from the cash register.

Whitlow said a black male thought to be in his 50s entered the store just before 7 p.m. Thursday and asked for help locating several items. Once the items were secured the man went to the register where he produced a long-barreled revolver, pointed the gun at the clerk and demanded money from the cash register, Whitlow said.

The man left the store on foot with the money, said Whitlow.

No one was injured in the robbery, Whitlow said.

Whitlow said the man was described as 5’6”-5’7” in height with a gray and white beard and wearing blue jeans, a white t-shirt with a I Love NY (with a heart symbol) and a green baseball cap with a white emblem on the left side.

Whitlow said investigators are looking into the possibility that the man may have been involved in similar robberies in area jurisdictions.

And all of you people on here who continue to try and convince me I live in a perfectly safe much convincing is it going to take to make people believe this city is crime ridden and loaded up with thugs. 7 pm on a weeknight and it is not safe to run to the drug store to pick up some aspirin.
