Police quickly apprehend suspect following armed robbery of East Side CVS Pharmacy
MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Milwaukee police say they have arrested a suspect accused in the armed robbery of the CVS Pharmacy located on the city’s East Side.
The robbery occurred on Tuesday night, September 16th — around 10:00 p.m., at the CVS Pharmacy on Farwell Avenue.
Police say a store employee told officers a suspect entered the store, picked up some items and gave an employee a demand note saying he had a gun. The suspect was able to get cash from the register, and he then fled the store.
Police say officers in the area saw a suspect matching the description of the individual involved in the armed robbery and initiated a foot pursuit — taking the 21-year-old Milwaukee man into custody in the 1600 block of E. Irving Place.
Charges are expected from the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office in the coming days.
