A man walked into the Richmond Walgreens Pharmacy and department store and stole a pack of cigarettes. Richmond police Master Sergeant Lowell Neinast said “The unidentified man walked into the Walgreen’s at 12:52 PM,
Tuesday, June 28, and is seen in the photo placing merchandise in his pockets. He then went to the checkout register and asked the clerk for a pack of cigarettes. When the clerk went to ring up the cigarettes the suspect grabbed the pack of cigarettes from the clerk’s hand and ran out the store.”
The suspect was last seen leaving the Walgreen’s parking lot in a gold vehicle traveling north on Collins Road. Neinast went on to say, “The theft of a pack of cigarettes would normally be considered a Class C Misdemeanor, however, since the suspect grabbed the cigarettes from the clerk’s hand, this is considered “Theft from a Person” which is a State Jail Felony.”
Anyone who recognizes this man is asked to contact Detective Diana Butinski at the Richmond Police Department at 281-342-2849.
