DETROIT (WWJ) – Detroit police are seeking the public’s help in identifying a man who robbed a local drug store of one particular item; diabetic testing strips — taking boxes of them.

The theft occurred at a Rite Aid store on Wyoming on Aug. 18, as the suspect simply climbed over the counter to take the items. When confronted, the man lifted his shirt revealing a handgun tucked in his waistband — advising the clerk to “get back.”
