Police release video of CVS robberies in Manayunk

The Philadelphia Police Department is asking for the public’s help in identifying a man seen on surveillance video stealing razors and soap from a Manayunk CVS store.

Police say he stole items from the Main Street store on two separate occasions this month.

The first incident happened on March 5 at 9:35 p.m., in which $1,000 in men’s razors was stolen from the store.

On March 8, the same suspect was seen stealing nearly $80 in soap from the shelves.
