Pharmacy Robbed Of Cash

The CVS drug store at 1013 Mass. Ave. was robbed of an undisclosed "large amount" of cash Sunday morning, Cambridge police said yesterday.

When the store supervisor went into the rear office of the store to do paperwork around 10 a.m., the suspect confronted her, according to the police report.

The suspect then turned around behind her and forced the supervisor upstairs, making her lie on the floor as he taped her hands and legs with black electrical tape, the report said.

The suspect, a 5'7", 170 pound white male in his 20s, then took a large amount of cash from the store's safe, which he forced the supervisor to open. He then fled the store. The suspect was unshaven, very dirty, and was wearing a grey stocking cap and a grey winter jacket at the time of the robbery.

Contacted yesterday, the store's manager acknowledged the robbery but declined to provide further information about store security. The store is located between Harvard and Central Squares.


Cambridge police are seeking the suspect on charges of unarmed robbery and confining and putting in fear, a Cambridge police spokesperson said yesterday.
