CVS robbery

The Kokomo Police Department is requesting help in locating two men who are suspected to have robbed CVS on West Sycamore Street early this morning.

Just before 4 a.m., KPD received a 911 call to report an armed robbery at CVS, 2340 W. Sycamore St. KPD responded and spoke to witnesses who advised two males entered the store around 3:51 a.m. and robbed the pharmacy of narcotics.

The first suspect was described as a thin male of average height with his face covered, wearing a black hoodie with an emblem on the left chest area, dark jeans or pants, dark tennis shoes, and armed with a firearm.

The other suspect also was described as a thin male of average height who had his face covered. He was reported to be wearing a dark hoodie with stripes down the arms and a large Addidas emblem on the back, dark pants, possible black-and-white Nike Air Jordan shoes, white gloves, and armed with a firearm.

The suspects took a large amount of schedule II hydrocodone in 100 count bottles (assorted doses and manufacturers). The suspects left the pharmacy through the north drive-through window.

A short time later, a tan 2018 Toyota Camry four-door was located unoccupied in the area of 600 W. 00 N. S. This vehicle was determined to be stolen from Marion County on Sept. 11.
