STOCKTON — Police say employees stopped a man who tried to rob a Stockton CVS Pharmacy, where he once worked as a loss prevention officer.
Early Sunday morning, a masked suspect armed with a knife held up employees at the CVS on West March Lane, according to the Stockton Police Department.
As the suspect began to walk out with around $2,500 from a register, employees tackled him and restrained him.
Once officers arrived they took the suspect’s ski mask off and revealed his identity as 24-year-old Nicholas Juarez, who once worked at the store.
His car was found in the parking lot with a fake license plate and the vehicle identification number was hidden with duct tape.
Juarez was arrested on suspicion of armed robbery.
