She knew whom I was talking about when I described him because she had seen him before she went back to the office. She walked the perimeter of the store and didn't see anybody. We decided to call the police because it is a pharmacy after all and there had been a rash of Oxycontin thefts in the area. The policeman came immediately. He searched the entire store including the stock area. He did not find anyone.
The policeman told me to pull my drawer and he kindly waited until we were ready to leave before he left. The only other way out was the back door in the stock area, and the man would have had to pass the manager to go out that way. She reviewed the security tapes the next day. She saw no sign that the man had ever been in the store.
Last but not least our poltergeist may have tried to warn me before we were robbed.
About five minutes before the robbery my cellphone started to ring. I was busy with several customers and I couldn't answer it. The phone was still lit up when I went to check it to see who had called. It was on the message screen but there was nothing on it. I thought this was odd because my phone is not set up to ring for messages so I went to check my received calls to see who had called me.
The last call listed was one I had picked up the day before. I went to the message screen. The last message I received was the standard message I get from my cellphone carrier at the first of every month. There was no record on my phone (I even checked the dialed calls) of a call coming in.
At the time I thought, "how weird," but then we were robbed just a few minutes later. Now I wonder.
