Armed Robber Jumps From Wheelchair in Pharmacy Holdup: Cops
Three men walked out of a California pharmacy with a sack full of prescription drugs.
Surveillance footage from a California pharmacy caught the shocking moment an alleged robber held employees at gunpoint after leaping from a prop wheelchair.
The three suspects entered the Bright Medical Pharmacy late last month, according to police. One of the men was pushing another in a wheelchair.
Once the seated suspect was wheeled behind the pharmacy counter, he stood up and produced a black handgun, at which point the suspects ordered the employees to the ground, Whittier police say.
With the terrified employees on the floor, a third suspect allegedly filled a black bag with thousands of dollars' worth of various types of prescription medication.
The suspects are described as follows:
Suspect No. 1 is described as a black male of unknown height and weight wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and a beard. Suspect No. 2 is a black male who stands about 5 foot, 8 inches, weighing 160 lbs. and wearing a sweater with a unique pattern. He has a "Roman numeral" type tattoo on his neck.
Suspect No. 3 is a black male of unknown height and weight wearing a black "Rams" hat and sweatshirt.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact the Crime Tipline at (562) 567-9299.
