Police are currently searching for a man who they suspect robbed a CVS location. The Connecticut robbery occurred during the evening of Sept. 25, 2013. A man allegedly entered the pharmacy and robbed a pharmacy clerk at gunpoint in South Windsor, Connecticut. If police do apprehend a suspect in this case, they will press criminal charges against that individual.
Police have issued a photo of a man who was entering the store, and they suspect that this man was the one who completed the robbery, which took place at approximately 8:30 p.m. in the evening. The man, who has yet to be identified, apparently had a handgun on his person at the time of the robbery. He reportedly walked toward the clerk at the counter of the pharmacy inside the CVS store, and he took away an unknown number of pills.
Fortunately, no one was injured during the robbery. Also, it is not known if the robber's handgun -- if it was a firearm -- was loaded during the incident. Further, it is not known if the individual actually pointed the gun at anyone and/or used it in any manner during the course of the robbery. Police have sent out a bulletin to ask that anyone who may have any further information to contact authorities with regard to the incident as soon as possible.
It is not uncommon for multiple suspects to be arrested in connection with a crime that was committed by only one person. For example, Connecticut police will spread their search broad and wide and arrest anyone they feel may be guilty and/or connected with a robbery. It must be remembered, however, that just because one has been arrested as a suspect in a robbery does not mean that he or she will be found guilty for that crime in a court of law. Every accused individual has the opportunity to confront his accusers in a court of law and defend him or herself against the criminal charges with a strategic criminal defense.
