Police have released photos taken from surveillance footage during the Jan. 14 armed robbery of a Riverhead CVS.

And they’re asking for the public’s help in locating the two masked suspects.


The two men entered the 24-hour CVS on Route 58 about 3:30 a.m., with one of the suspects displaying a handgun and forcing a CVS employee to open a store safe.

The two men then fled on foot with an undetermined amount of money, police said.

Both are described as thin, with one about 6-foot tall and the other 5-foot-9, police said. The taller suspect “was wearing a skull image mask, black hooded sweatshirt and a baseball hat,” police said. The other was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, brown mask and a baseball hat.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at (631) 727-4500, ext. 289.
