F.S. CVS robbed at gunpoint

The CVS on Franklin Avenue was robbed by two men just after 2 a.m. on Sunday, according to Nassau County police, who said that one of them had a handgun.

The two men, who were both wearing masks, approached two of the drug store’s employees, and took a cell phone and cash from one of them and stole money from the cash register, police said.

The employees were not injured, and the thieves left the store, possibly headed west on foot, according to police.

One of the men appeared to be Asian and wore a dark-colored, hooded sweatshirt, dark jeans and a mask covering part of his face, officials said. The other wore a similar sweatshirt, dark sweatpants with a white stripe on the leg and a mask.

Detectives ask that anyone who has information about this crime contact Nassau County Crime Stoppers at (800) 244-TIPS. All callers will remain anonymous.
