Police probe Windsor robbery
WINDSOR – Investigators are looking into several leads and are seeking help from the public as they probe a gunpoint robbery of the Rite Aid pharmacy on Main Street in Windsor.
A white male entered the store at 7:40 p.m. Wednesday and threatened staff with a “dark colored” handgun before taking an undetermined amount of prescription drugs and running out the back door into a back alley behind the store, police said.
The robber, who stood between about 6 feet tall, was wearing a red shirt and a black mask.
A Vermont State Police canine tracked the suspect’s scent beginning in the alley and continued for several hundred yards up State Street before the trail was lost, according to police
Windsor Police would like anyone who might have information on the robbery to call them at 674-9042.
Although robberies around the region have become much more frequent in recent months, the robbery of the same pharmacy back in August by a lone gunman was, at the time, the first such incident in the Windsor area in quite a while, according to police.
Officers said Thursday that while their investigation was making some progress it was too early to tell if the pair of robberies, which occurred 10 months apart, could have involved the same person.
