Robbery at CVS; OxyContin stolen
Addictive pills stolen
About 20 minutes in the past – there was a robbery at the pharmacy section at the downtown CVS (59 Washington Street).
A white man, thought to be in his mid to late 30’s, beard, blue or black shorts, green shirt and a white NY Yankess cap allegedly presented a weapon at the CVS Pharmacy and made off with an unknown quantity of OxyContin pills.
Hoboken Police and NJ Transit Police searched the area furiously. At one point it was thought he boarded a NJT bus – but all searches came up negative. This incident was also broadcast on NJ’s SPEN network. Additionally, they have the suspect on video (the beard could have been a costume?)
