Couple steals products from CVS after asking employee where to find them


Police are looking for a man and woman who reportedly shoplifted multiple items from CVS Pharmacy after asking an employee where the items were located in the store, Bloomington Police Department Sgt. Brandon Lopossa said.

A man and a woman entered the CVS Pharmacy located at 1000 N. College Ave. with a child on Tuesday afternoon. They approached a CVS employee and asked where they could find hair growth products and physical activity trackers in the store.

Later, CVS employees found empty boxes that matched the products the couple was looking for, including a 2.11 ounce can of CVS brand hair regrowth treatment foam for men.

The other shoplifted items included a physical activity tracker, a box fan and a cooler. The total cost of stolen goods is $126.49.

The man is in his late 20s or early 30s and has a medium build, Lopossa said. He was wearing a red IU shirt. The woman is roughly the same age and has dark hair and a heavy build. She was wearing a black shirt with a colorful skull decoration and black shorts.
