Police search for would-be robber of West Toledo store

BLADE STAFF

Sometimes even robbers have some manners.

Early today, just before 1:30 a.m., a Walgreens pharmacist was walking toward the front of the store at 4580 Monroe St., toward a man who appeared to be shopping, according to a Toledo police report.

When she got close, the man -- who was wearing a mask -- turned around, pointed a gun at the pharmacist, and demanded she open the cash register.

The woman said that, because she is the pharmacist, she doesn't have access to the registers.

"OK. Have a nice day," the masked gunman said before fleeing the store.

The suspect has not been identified, but was described as black, 5 feet, 8 inches, and 250 pounds. He was last seen wearing a dark gray or black hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans with holes in the knees, and work boots.

Ask anyone with information is asked to call call Crime Stoppers at 419-255-1111.
