Like lightening that strikes the same place twice, an armed thief successfully robbed the same pharmacy in a 1-week time frame.

A Walgreens in Tulsa, Oklahoma, was robbed on January 12, 2015, and again on January 19, 2015, according to Tulsa’s Channel 8. The news station’s report stated that police are currently investigating the latter armed robbery that took place around 4 a.m. on January 19, 2015.

The suspect walked into the 24-hour store wearing a bandana and carrying a shotgun. He then demanded that the manager grab money from the pharmacy’s safe in the back office. The suspect left after getting his hands on the cash.

The armed robber, who did not injure anyone during the incident, could not be found by K9 officers. Police told Channel 8 that the man might have escaped in a nearby vehicle.

One week prior to that robbery, a man entered the same Walgreens store, threw the contents of a bottle of rubbing alcohol in a clerk’s face, and implied that he had a weapon. He then left the pharmacy with an undisclosed amount of money, according to Tulsa CW.
