Theft from CVS in Columbia


Columbia police are investigating after two men stole a basket of alcohol products from CVS Pharmacy, 100 Admiral Trost Drive, and left the store in a red Chevrolet Lumina about 3:30 p.m. Sunday.

The suspects were described as a white male and a black male, with the white male bumping into a female customer as he was fleeing the store.

The suspect vehicle, with a license plate that returns out of Cahokia, also ran a red light on Route 3 at Bottom Avenue in Columbia shortly after the incident occurred, according to witnesses.

Police on Tuesday provided surveillance photos captured by the store’s security system. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Columbia Police Department at 618-281-5151.
