Former Loss Prevention Officer Accused of Trying to Rob Stockton CVS

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.
