Walgreens staff saw no weapon, but the woman kept her hand in her pocket in a way that suggested she was armed, police said. Police didn’t disclose what the woman took from the store.
The woman told the workers that a male was watching and making her commit the robbery, police said. A small red car was observed in the parking lot at the time of the robbery.
The woman, who is white, was wearing white shoes, faded blue jeans and a brown hooded jacket.
Anyone with information on the woman’s identity and her whereabouts is asked to call Mooresville police Detective J. Quinn at 704-664-3311.
