CVS in Galloway robbed for third time; one in custody

Posted: Updated:

For the third time this month the CVS in Galloway Township has been robbed and now police say they have made an arrest.

The sign on the door now reads closed. The only people inside this CVS on Old New York Road Thursday afternoon were investigators after another robbery earlier in the day.

"We responded to the CVS for the report of another armed robbery," Acting Capt.. Christopher Doyle said.

This is not the first time investigators have been to this very CVS either.

In the last thirty days it has been hit three times.

 Surveillance footage from earlier this month shows a woman coming into the store with a bag over her hand and that's when police say she allegedly would demand pills. Locals were saddened that it happened yet again.

"I just heard today they were hit again. It's sad. These people are so nice. Just young Kids and they have a security person in there," nearby resident Robert Lyons said.

Residents are now breathing a sigh of relief, the woman's alleged robbery spree is over.

"We were able to get information from witnesses and we had a K9 track that led us to an area. We were able to locate a suspect that matched the description," Doyle said.

Police took that woman into custody, now they believe she is the same person responsible for all three robberies.  She has been identified as 48 year-old Debra Conover, of Galloway Township.  A K-9 track led them to her after she fled the scene Thursday afternoon.  Now she faces multiple charges, and is being held on $250,000 bail.

According to police, in Conover's earlier hits on this CVS she made away with 300 prescription Oxycodone pills and on December 29th she made away with 300 Percocept.

As of Thursday afternoon this CVS store remains closed pending further investigation.
