Robber Dressed As Pirate Strikes Colorado Springs Walgreens For Second Time


Yar! Piracy has again taken over the landlocked state of Colorado.

A bearded scallywag first robbed the Colorado Springs Walgreens at 920 North Circle Drive in May of this year.

Complete with a fake beard, eyepatch, and weapon (likely the most modern part of his outfit), the man demanded prescription medications from a clerk and fled the scene.

The Gazette reports that at 3 a.m. Friday morning a similarly-disguised man returned to the Walgreens, again seeking to plunder the pharmacy counter.

Once the pirate realized he had been seen, he fled the store.

Police are not sure if the two robberies are related.
