SPARKS, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- Secret Witness is offering a reward in the amount of $1,500.00 for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of the suspect wanted in connection with the armed robbery at the CVS Pharmacy 680 N. McCarran Sparks, NV.
On Dec. 12, at approximately 5:47 p.m., the Sparks Police Department received a 911 call of an armed robbery in progress at the CVS Pharmacy on N. McCarran Blvd. The original call said that the suspect was wearing a mask and had a backpack and was last seen exiting the north doors of the business.
Officers searched the area, but were unable to find the correct suspect. Officers then retrieved the video surveillance and observed that the suspect was actually wearing what appeared to be a white plastic face mask that was form fitting and only revealed his eyes.
The suspect was seen wearing a burgundy sweatshirt with the hood pulled over the top of his head that had a white Adidas symbol in the middle and had black pants on with white and black shoes. The suspect is presumed to be a male and had a black backpack with him.
The video surveillance revealed that he did have a black handgun in which he displayed to the attendant and demanded that she open up the drawers containing the money. The attendant opened up the drawer. The suspect then reached over and lifted the entire cash tray and placed it in his backpack. The suspect then exited through the north doors with an undisclosed amount of money. No one was injured during the robbery.
The robbery occurred where the slot machines are located inside of CVS, which was later identified as Golden Gaming. Golden Gaming is a separate entity from CVS, but located inside of the business.
