Five suspects are being sought in connection with an early morning armed robbery of a pharmacy in Garden Grove.
According to Sgt. Juan Delgado of the GGPD, the incident took place at 4:10 a.m. at the Walgreens in the 12000 block of Euclid Street, at Chapman Avenue.
Five males – one of which was armed with a handgun – entered the business, jumped over the pharmacy counter and began taking codeine bottles and other merchandise. They were described only as having covered faces and wearing dark clothing and gloves.
They left the building and fled in an automobile with a short pursuit by police officers ensuing north on Euclid Street. For reasons unknown, the suspect vehicle’s engine caught fire and became disabled near the intersection of Euclid and Cerritos Avenue in Anaheim.
The suspects fled on foot, leaving behind evidence and personal property. A search of the area was conducted with the help of the Anaheim Police Department and deputies from the Orange County Sheriff’s deputies.
The five suspects were not located but a discarded handgun was found.
Anyone with information about the robberies is asked to contact the GGPD’s Crimes Against Persons Unit at (714) 741-5800.
