Security Footage Shows Thursday Liquor Store Robbery

By Forrest Saunders

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa — Shocking security footage captures a robber waving a gun and demanding money at a liquor store stickup, Thursday afternoon.

The footage is from Discount Liquor on 1st Ave Southeast. In it, you can see a masked black male entering the store at about 5:30. He then points a hand gun at a customer and a cashier.

The robber demands all the money in the register, then makes off with the cash.

Cashier, Suneel Sharma, said at first he didn’t think the robbery was real.

“I thought he was just fooling around. I laughed. And she said ‘Are you for real?’ He cocks his gun, ‘You want to see whether it’s real?’” said Sharma.

Police are still investigating the crime. If you have any information, contact the Linn County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-CS-CRIME.
