Walgreen's Robber Has 'Swollen Cheeks'


By Veronica Waters

Atlanta, GA None —

Wanted:  Older WF with swollen cheeks.   

DeKalb County Police are looking for an armed robber with a unique look. 

Police say a white female held up a Walgreen's drugstore at 2320 North Druid Hills Road Monday, pulling out a handgun and demanding cash at a checkout counter.  Once she got the money, she took off.

Surveillance video captures an image of the woman, whom witnesses describe as 5'6" and about 60-70 years old.  DeKalb Police spokeswoman Mekka Parrish tells WSB that the clerk was able to describe

"Quite naturally for anyone, when a gun is pulled out, the amount of information that you gather is very limited," says Parrish.  "The one thing that we were able to that she had distinctive facial features--cheeks that were swollen and described as red." 

The woman is believed to have driven away in a light-colored tan or gold Jeep Liberty.

She was last seen wearing a baseball hat with a white and red "G" in the center, sunglasses, brown jacket and stone washed jeans.

Tipsters are asked to call the DeKalb Police Major Unit at (770) 724-7890.
