Man walks out of Walgreens with cash register

Auburn Police blotter

A cash register with $700 cash was stolen from the Walgreens on Auburn Way South on Aug. 15, according to the Auburn Police Department blotter.

Shortly after 2 p.m., a man wearing a blue jacket, black pants and a blue backpack walked into the Walgreens and asked an employee about phones, according to the report.

When the employee walked away, the man quickly unplugged the cash register, picked it up and walked out of the store. The man was only in the store for about a minute, said one employee on the report.

After leaving the store, the man walked south on M Street Southeast, and he was gone by the time police arrived, according to the report.

Employees said the man seemed like he knew what he was doing and that he looked similar to a man who had previously stolen a register from the store, according to the report.
