Nearby business reacts to armed robbery at Greenwood Pharmacy

WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Pills and cash- the motive behind Tuesday night's robbery in Waterloo.

Just before 10 p.m., two men with guns stormed into Greenwood Pharmacy. Just hours later, as daylight brings a sense of safety...people in nearby businesses can't believe it.

Rachel Gillespie from Cabin Coffee Company next door says, "We know a lot of those workers over there, so it's scary to think that those are people you see everyday, that you talk to.. and that they could be in that type of harm..so it is scary."

No one was hurt, but the robbery leaves the neighboring business asking "what if?"

Chelsea Mathews from Cabin Coffee Company says, "We know pretty much everyone that comes through here.  We know their names and we have
a lot of regulars...so it's just crazy. That easily could have been our store too."

Greenwood Pharmacy sent us this statement, "We are just grateful that no one was hurt during the incident and thankful for the Waterloo Police department and their quick reaction, which resulted in apprehension of the offenders."
