MADISON, Ala. – Madison police are looking three suspects accused of robbing a Walgreens.

Officials say three individuals robbed the Walgreen’s on the corner of Highway 72 and Hughes Rd in Madison on Friday, July 26th. According to police, these suspects were armed.

In the video, you can see a young man walk into the store around 3:50 a.m. About 20 minutes later, he returns again with two others behind him. One of the suspects was holding a pink handgun.

After running around the store, Captain John Stringer with Madison Police Department Investigations says they detained those within the store. “They detained everyone who was there, mostly employees, and moved them to a back room,” says Stringer. “They proceeded to rob the pharmacy of an amount of narcotics.”

Capt. Stringer says they decided to release the security footage to reach people inside and outside the Madison community.

“What we are hoping is somebody somewhere recognizes one of these people. The more information we can put out and the greater amount of data that we can be able to go through to eliminate leads, or to secure leads… That’s going to put us that much closer to be able to solve this robbery.”

He says no matter how long it takes, they plan to continue to investigate, to find these suspects, and to prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law to protect you and your neighbors.

“We have a duty, a responsibility, and a deep commitment to protect and serve our community. We will not tolerate robberies or any other crimes of violence in the city of Madison. Our citizens deserve more.”

WHNT News 19 has reached out to Walgreens for comment and they say they will cooperate with all police investigations.
