Men Claim to Have Gun, Rob Parsippany Pharmacy, Cops Say
Duo allegedly steals $300 from Lake Hiawatha's Rite Aid early Sunday evening.
Two men—one claiming to have a gun—robbed a North Beverwyck Road pharmacy of $300 early Sunday evening, Parsippany Police said.
Two men entered the Rite Aid Pharmacy and approached a cashier at the front of the store Sunday at about 5:50 p.m., according to police.
Police said one of the men told the cashier he had a gun and demanded money from the register. The employee opened the drawer, allowing one of the men to reach over the counter and take cash, police said. Police said the men fled the area on foot with $300.
No weapon was displayed during the incident, police said.
Both men were described as white with a similar thin build, about 5-foot-7 to 5-foot-9 and they were believed to be in their early 20s, police said. One man was wearing a grey hooded-sweatshirt with “Tapout” written on the chest and the other was wearing a black baseball cap and a black sweatshirt, police said.
A search of the area for the two men was unsuccessful, police said.
The pharmacy, located at 480 N. Beverwyck Road, is less than a mile from Kazumi Sushi, 81 N. Beverwyck Road, where a Parsippany man allegedly stabbed his 34-year-old wife to death late Friday night.
