Man robs Palm Desert CVS


A man who said he had a gun robbed a Palm Desert pharmacy today, a sheriff's spokesman said.

The robbery was reported about 11:15 a.m. at CVS Pharmacy in the 42000 block of Washington Street. A man entered, walked to the pharmacy counter and ``simulated a gun underneath his T-shirt,'' then left with an undisclosed amount of items, Riverside County sheriff's Deputy Julio Oseguera said.

The suspect ran off and deputies couldn't find him, Oseguera said. No injuries were reported.

He was described as white, in his 30s, wearing a black baseball cap, black sunglasses, a black T-shirt and blue jeans.

Anyone with information was asked to call the sheriff's department at (760) 836-1600 or Coachella Valley Crime Stoppers at (760) 341-7867. Tips can be anonymous and may lead to a cash reward.
