Police are investigating an early morning robbery that occurred Wednesday at the CVS pharmacy on Claremont Avenue in Montclair.

At 1:51 a.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 6, a man approached the counter seemingly to check out a number of items. But as the cashier was ringing up the purchase, the man handed the employee a note demanding money and stated that he was armed with a gun. The cashier gave the man $40 from the register, and the suspect fled the store with the cash and the note, said Lt. David O’Dowd.

The suspect is described as a white male between 25 and 40 years of age and a little over six feet in height. The suspect was wearing a jacket with the hood up at the time of the robbery.

No one was injured, and the incident is under investigation. Anyone with information about the robbery is urged to contact the Montclair Police Department at 973-744-1234.
