Robber sought in Covina Walgreen’s robbery

COVINA — A armed robber escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash Thursday after holding up a Walgreens store, police said.
The robbery was reported just after 2 p.m. at the store at Azusa Avenue and San Bernardino Road, Covina police Sgt. Jim McDonough said.
Police described the robber as a black man in his 30s wearing a black shirt and blue jeans and armed with a handgun.
He entered the store, pointed a handgun at a male clerk and helped himself to cash from the register, the sergeant said. The robber was last seen fleeing west on San Bernardino Road on foot.
Police recovered good quality surveillance footage believed to show the robber, McDonough said.
Police declined to release the video publicly Thursday pending review by detectives.
