ST. CHARLES – The St. Charles Police Department is investigating the Monday night robbery of a drugstore on the city’s east side, spokesman Paul McCurtain said Thursday.

Police were called to Walgreens, 2751 E. Main St., at 9:35 p.m. where an employee said a male subject called the pharmacy telephone and said his companion was in the store, had a gun and was watching the employees, McCurtain said.

He said the caller then told the employee to put pills into a bag and place it into the store’s pickup window.

An accomplice picked up the bag, McCurtain said. He would not say whether the retrieval was by foot or car. Police also aren’t releasing details on the stolen pills, just that they contained a controlled substance.

No weapon was displayed during the incident, and nobody was hurt, McCurtain said.

St. Charles police are working with Walgreens security and Naperville police because a similar case happened in Naperville that day.

McCurtain said the case remains under investigation, surveillance tapes are being reviewed and evidence is being evaluated.
