CATHEDRAL CITY, Calif. -

Police sought public help today in finding whoever robbed a pizza business and a Walgreens pharmacy in Cathedral City.

An employee of Little Caesar's Pizza at 69040 Ramon Road reported that someone robbed the restaurant about 10:50 p.m. Tuesday. As officers arrived, someone reported that Walgreens at 30015 Date Palm Drive had just been robbed, Cathedral City police Sgt. Julio Luna said.
