The CVS at 200 West End Avenue (at 70th Street) has been robbed three times since January 7, Patch was first to report. Two of those robberies took place this past weekend.


The first incident took place on January 7 at about 8:55 p.m., when police got a call about a man who had entered the store and “removed body wash and diapers.” That man, 44-year-old Ronsheen Newell, was arrested just minutes later at 9:03 p.m., according to NYPD officials. Newell was charged with Petit Larceny and Criminal Possession of Stolen Property.

On Saturday, January 20 at about 2 p.m., two suspects (both currently at large) walked in and stole $841 worth of makeup and shampoo, placing them into a bag before leaving.

And on Sunday, January 21 at about 5:49 p.m., police got a call about a man who came into the store and “removed socks.” That man, 55-year-old David Losey, was arrested at 6:00 p.m. on charges of Petit Larceny, Criminal Possession of Stolen Property, and Criminal Impersonation (per Patch’s report, he gave the police a fake name and false date of birth). Patch also notes that the value of the socks was $32, and that he concealed them in his pants. Public records indicate that Losey was also arrested on June 15, 2023 on charges of Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance (Crack), and on December 25, 2022 on charges of Identity Theft, Grand Larceny (stealing a credit card) and Petit Larceny.
