Suspect Faked Heart Attack While Accomplice Robbed Store [Video]

Police say a man faked a heart attack in a CVS in Malden, Massachusetts, while his accomplice hopped over the counter to steal money from the register.

Officers responding to a reported theft at the Broadway store on Sunday afternoon learned from workers that two white who entered the store together cleaned out the cash register after one of them faked a heart attack, according to a post on Facebook.

One of the suspects left a knit hat at the scene. “I’m sure if the public’s help doesn’t lead to your identity, the hat you left behind likely will,” the department said in the social media post.
