Jefferson City Walgreens Armed Robbery Two Suspects Still At Large

A search is continuing after an armed robbery early this (Wednesday) morning at the Walgreens on Missouri Boulevard in Jefferson City.

Jefferson City police went to the Walgreens close to Midnight to an armed robbery in progress where three black males entered the store wearing surgical masks and rubbery gloves and reportedly pointed a handgun at the cashier.

Police say the men tied the cashiers hands behind his back and forced him back to the pharmacy, then ordered the pharmacist to give them prescription drugs.

The suspects left and ran into a vehicle waiting behind the business and police began to chase them.

Spike strips were put on a road near Platinum Road and Jazel Lane near Holts Summit, where the suspect vehicle crashed into a yard, and three people left.

Two people were taken into custody. Another suspect was found around 4:15 this (Wednesday) morning hiding on a roof of an O’Reilly Auto Parts and arrested.

Two others are still at large in Callaway County and are believed to be armed and dangerous.

The highway patrol had a helicopter patrolling the area.

Police ask if anyone sees any suspicious activity near Platinum Road and Jazel Lane in Callaway County to call 911.
