The robber entered the pharmacy in the 100 block of Boulevard at 8:20 p.m., walked halfway down an aisle, then pulled the ski mark over his face and walked straight to the front of the store, Police Detective Sgt. Michael Colaneri Jr. told CLIFFVIEW PILOT late last night.
Pointing a black handgun, the 6-foot-tall, 160-pound robber ordered the cashier in a Spanish accent to empty the register into his black Jansport backpack, Colaneri said.
He then exited south on Boulevard and got into what police believe was a dark-colored, four-door Volkswagen sedan around the corner from the pharmacy that headed west.
Colaneri said the robber was wearing a black sweatshirt, black pants, black gloves and grey and blue sneakers.
He also had black gage earrings and a yellow and black necklace.
