Police are looking for a suspect who robbed a Walgreens in Colorado Springs.

Officers tell us it happened a little after 8:30p.m. Tuesday on North Academy at North Carefree. It happened shortly after a liquor store was robbed in the same area.

Police say a male suspect acted as if he was making a purchase. While opening the cash drawer, the suspect committed a strong-armed type robbery, removing all the cash from the drawer. No weapon was seen and the cashier was not hurt.

A witness told police that he saw a Chevrolet pickup take off northbound on Academy.

Police say the suspect is described as Hispanic, 5 ft 7 inches, 145 lbs, late 30's, wearing a plaid sweater, a gray hood, and blue jeans.

If you know anything about this robbery, you're asked to call Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP.
