KDPS: Man with knife robs Walgreens

KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WOOD) — Police are looking for the man armed with a knife who robbed a Kalamazoo Walgreens late Sunday afternoon.

It happened around 5:45 p.m. at the Walgreens in the 3000 block of S. Westnedge Avenue, north of Whites Road.

The Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety says a man told the clerk he wanted to buy a candy bar. When the clerk opened the cash drawer to make change, the man showed a knife, reached into the drawer and stole the money.

He took off on foot with the cash and the candy bar, KDPS says.

A K-9 tracked the robber to an area of Whites Road. There, witnesses told officers they saw a dark-colored Chevrolet Malibu driving away.

The suspect is described as a black male in his late 20s or early 30s with an average build. He was wearing a black and white checkered long-sleeve shirt, a dark-colored hat and dark blue jeans.

Anyone with information is asked to call KDPS at 269.337.8994 or Silent Observer at 269.343.2100.
