COLLINSVILLE, IL (KTVI)– Collinsville Police Officers responded to a call Friday June 21, 2013 for a reported robbery at the CVS Pharmacy on Beltline Road.

The report claims that an African American male entered the store and reached over the counter grabbing an undetermined amount of cash from the register during a transaction. The suspect fled the area in a vehicle and no weapons were involved.

In a follow-up investigation the police identified the suspect as Carlyle Curry. He is approximately 5 foot 7 and between 170 and 190 lbs. The suspect is 39-years-old and was donning sunglasses and a goatee at the time of the robbery.
