A Chicago man who allegedly burglarized an Edgewater CVS last year while he was an employee of the store returned to the same location twice in the past month to rob it, prosecutors said Saturday. Myles Webb, 28, is charged with two counts of robbery and one count of burglary in connection with the alleged crimes at the pharmacy chain’s 6150 North Broadway location.
On November 5, Webb used his key to enter the store before business hours, prosecutors said. He allegedly turned off the alarm, took a large amount of cash, and left.
Then, on May 21, a female CVS employee was preparing to open the store when she saw Webb walking toward her with merchandise, according to prosecutors. When she told him the store was closed, Webb pushed a cart rack into her and announced a robbery, prosecutors said.
“Gimme all your money,” he allegedly demanded. “I’m not here to hurt you. Gimme all your money. “
The woman took Webb to the safe, and he took the cash from inside, along with the woman’s phone and keys, prosecutors said.
On June 19, he allegedly committed a nearly-identical robbery of the store when the same employee was preparing to open for business.
Police arrested Webb this week.
His public defender said he works full-time at the Chicago Tribune and a hotel. He lives with his girlfriend and children.
Judge Susana Ortiz set bail at $50,000 with electronic monitoring, meaning Webb must post $5,000 to get out of jail on house arrest.
