State Police Investigating Walgreens Robbery in Morgantown

Posted: Updated:

State Police are investigating a robbery at the Walgreens in Morgantown Wednesday.

The incident happened around midnight.

Police said the pharmacist received a phone call from a man saying he was in the store with a gun, and that if the pharmacist didn't comply "nobody would walk away."

The pharmacist was instructed to gather drugs and leave them in the drive-through window, then walk to the front of the store where he would give further instruction, according to State Police.

When the pharmacist walked to the front nobody was there, and the drugs were taken.

State Police said that a similar robbery took place in Uniontown, Pennsylvania. WPXI in Pittsburgh reports that the incident happened in June and more than $100,000 in drugs were stolen.
