CHICO, Calif.-

Chico Police are investigating two seperate robberies at two seperate Walgreens locations, that occured within an hour of eachother. 

The first robbery happened around 7pm at the Walgreens on Nord Avenue.


Police say the robber,  wearing a camo shirt, gray sweatpants and black shoes jumped over the counter, grabbed the cash and took off.


About 45 minutes later, police say a man wearing camo walked into the Walgreens on East and Cohasset, jumped over the counter and stole some drugs.


People in Chico say the news is alarming. Audrey Taylor, from Chico, says, "I think families get more concerned about where they're taking their children, and where they're shopping and the neighborhoods that they're in and just how do we avoid these types of things."
