Columbus Police looking for woman who robbed CVS Pharmacy near Victorian Village


Columbus Police are asking for your help finding a woman they say robbed a CVS before hitting up a Walgreens shortly after.

It happened Tuesday, January 16, at the CVS Pharmacy on Neil Avenue just before 7:00 p.m.

Police say the woman brandished a box cutter, jumped the pharmacy counter and demanded a specific type of scheduled narcotic medication.

Officials say she was wearing a long, grayish "puffy coat" with a red hoodie underneath. She was also wearing a dark toboggan hat, black yoga pants and black tennis shoes with white soles.

Police say no injuries were reported, but they think the same woman robbed a Walgreens on E. Broad Street shortly after.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Columbus Division of Police at (614) 645-4665 or anonymously through Central Ohio Crime Stoppers at (614) 461-8477.
