A rash of robberies within the last month is prompting law enforcement and city officials to offer a monetary reward. The City of St. George has offered $1,000 for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for four different area robberies. The suspect is described as a white male, 5’7” to 5’11”, 130-150 pounds and between 20-30 years old.
The first robbery occurred on July 22 at the Kmart located at 745 South Bluff Street. At the time, the suspect was wearing a grayish t-shirt, a black baseball cap, and a medical mask on his face with white latex gloves.
On July 28, St. George Police responded to the Intermountain Healthcare Instacare at 577 South River Road. Authorities say a male walked in to the pharmacy showing a gun and demanding medications. That suspect was described as a white male wearing a motorcycle helmet, rubber gloves, a black coat, and jeans.
Two weeks later, on August 15, the Professional Park Pharmacy on River Road was robbed by a man who entered on foot demanding pain medication at gun point. He was seen with a blue v-neck type sweater with sweat-style pants and a long dark-haired wig. Witnesses say the suspect had a mask on covering his mouth and nose, and a fishing-style hat.
The most recent robbery occurred one week ago on August 19 at the Smith’s Pharmacy at 20 North Bluff. A man with a gun is said to have robbed the pharmacy inside the store, taking several prescription medications.
