Police are searching for a serial robber who keeps getting away, and surveillance video shows the crook getting bolder with each crime.
Lenexa police say Robin Luster is targeting the same business over and over. He also does not have a permanent address and just surfs from couch to couch, police say.
Essentially Luster is the robber who isn't concerned with being identified, police say.
"We would really like to catch him and bring him to justice," Friesen said.
Authorities say Luster is targeting 24-hour pharmacies around the metro but keeps stealing from one particular CVS store.
"This particular clerk that encountered him the last time kind of knew the drill. When he saw the guy come in, he knew what was about to happen," said Master Officer Dan Friesen with the Lenexa Police Department.
Clerks at the CVS off 87th Street in Lenexa are having unwanted déjà vu. Police say Luster enters the store for one reason: to steal.
"He has also hit other CVS stores in the metro area. We are not sure why he picks CVS other than the fact those are 24-hour pharmacies," Friesen said.
One clerk had enough and managed to pull cartons of cigarettes from Luster who quickly ran out of the store. He successfully ripped other merchandise out of another clerk's hands.
"History will tell us that criminals become more brave the more times they commit a similar type of crime. So we are always concerned this may escalate into a violent encounter," Friesen said.
Police say repeatedly targeting the same business is rare. They believe he may be getting a ride or someone is loaning him a car to target pharmacies in the metro area.
"Generally criminals are concerned about being recognized. They know the likelihood goes up if they return to the same place," Friesen said.
Police ask anyone with information about Luster to call the Lenexa Police Department.
