Police Investigate Walgreens Robbery

The Allen County Sheriff’s Department is looking for information regarding an armed robbery that occurred on January 11th around 8:30 p.m. at the Walgreens on SR 1. 

A white female in her early 20’s walked into the store and approached the checkout with an item.  When the cashier scanned the item, the suspect pulled out a gun and demanded cash.

The victim gave up her purse and the suspect fled. 

The suspect is being described as a white female with brunette or blonde hair. She is around 5’03” in her early 20’s. She was last seen wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, black yoga pants and white tennis shoes.  She also had either a lip or eyebrow piercing and a lot of eye makeup.
