Three Men Hold Up Woodhaven Pharmacy at Gunpoint, Steal $2,000

June 9, 2020 By Allie Griffin

Three armed men held customers at gunpoint inside a Woodhaven pharmacy Monday and took off with their wallets and more than $2,000.

The trio entered Good Health Pharmacy, located at 79-28 Jamaica Ave., around 6:40 p.m., held up their guns and announced that it was a robbery, police said.

There were four people in the pharmacy at the time — one employee and three customers. The men restrained all four people and grabbed their wallets and cash, police said.

They then fled the store and ran southbound on 80th Street with the cash and wallets worth about $2,100, according to the NYPD.

No one was injured. The three suspects are adult men, between 20 and 30 years old, police said.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM, or on Twitter @NYPDTips.

All calls are strictly confidential.

It’s been hot so what’s with the sweats and hoodies? That’s suspicious right there and I would have called 911 or pressed some alarm button.
