At CVS Robber takes cigs

Robber takes cigs

GUILDERLAND — On Dec. 24 at about 6 a.m., a man walked into the CVS at 2040 Western Ave. and handed the cashier a note indicating it was a robbery, say Guilderland Police.
"He didn’t brandish any weapon," said Investigator David Romano.
Asked what the man took, Romano said, "At this point, we know he took two cartons of cigarettes. We’re still waiting to hear from CVS if any actual money was taken."

The robber was caught on video and was described as being a white man, 30 to 40 years old, weighing 180 to 220 pounds, and wearing a blue jacket with blue jeans. He was also wearing a wig with long blond hair under a white ball cap, which Romano said was probably to disguise his true hair color.

He was also wearing a nose ring that the witness thought looked fake, Romano said.
Asked how the man left, Romano said, " We don’t know, after he walked out, if he got in a car or what. No one saw him get in a car."

Romano said that the Guilderland Police are tracking down leads and trying to see if it connects to other area robberies.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Guilderland Police Department at 356-1501.
