Video: Up to $30,000 Stolen During Target Armed Robbery
The Philadelphia Police Department is on the hunt for three men who allegedly stole $10,000 to $30,000 from a Target store in Northeast Philadelphia on Saturday night.
From the PPD:
The Philadelphia Police Department’s Northeast Detectives Division is looking to identify the suspects who robbed a Target Department Store in the Northeast Philadelphia Airport section of the city.
On Saturday, April 19, 2014, at 10:13 pm, three unknown black males exited the men’s restroom of Target located at 11000 Roosevelt Boulevard after closing the store at 10:00 pm and were demanding money from the store’s safe.
When the suspects were told that the safe could not be opened, they forced the store’s employees at gun point to stand in one area. The suspect then forced an employee to open the cash registers taking money from the drawers and placing the money into a dark colored backpack that was held by another suspect.
After taking approximately $10,000 to $30,000 in cash, the suspects fled the store on foot and were last seen towards Haldeman Manor Apartments located on the 10000 block of Haldeman Avenue. There were no reported injuries to Target personnel.
