YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – Youngstown Police responded to a robbery call at the Rite Aid on Midlothian Boulevard Saturday night.
According to a police report, a Rite Aid worker said the suspect walked into the store around 6:50 p.m. and went straight to the register, anxiously standing there for a moment and looking to see if anyone was watching.
When the worker went to the register to see if he needed anything, he told her to put the money in his black backpack — which appeared to have a Cleveland Cavaliers logo on it — before leaving the store, the report states.
After counting what was left in the drawer, a total of $883.63 was missing.
After talking to the store’s managers and reviewing surveillance video, police confirmed the worker’s description of the situation.
In the footage, the suspect appears to be a black man wearing a maroon hoodie with white cords and zippers, black Levi jeans, black or gray gloves, white and black shoes and a flat brim hat with a silver circular sticker on top of the brim, the report says.
Police worked with neighboring stores to review their surveillance videos. One of the stores was Walgreens, whose footage showed the same suspect attempting to rob its store.
