Police look for armed robber in Bloomington

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (WISH) — Police are seeking help in identifying a man they say robbed a Bloomington pharmacy at gunpoint early Monday morning.

The suspect, described as a 6-foot tall black male, entered the store at 1000 North Walnut Street, then demanded cash, Bloomington Police Department officials said in a news release.

The clerk told police the suspect initially requested help in finding a binder in the office supplies section of the store, and later used that binder to conceal his gun during the robbery. The clerk gave the man an undisclosed amount of cash and the suspect fled.

At one point, the suspect told the clerk he was going to “come in and start shooting people,” according to police.

The suspect, who also told the clerk he was from Atlanta and had been fired from another CVS, was wearing a dark leather jacket, sunglasses, black pants and a black toboggan hat.

Officials said the clerk thought the suspect might have a physical disability, based on his behavior and limb movements.

Those with any information related to the incident, or who may know the identity of the suspect, can call the Bloomington Police Department at 812-339-4477.
