Police are investigating a string of 56 robberies that have plagued two CVS stores on Cleveland's west side this year.

According to officials, the CVS located at 3171 West Blvd., has been robbed 24 times since March.

Authorities said the CVS store located at 10022 Madison Avenue has been robbed 32 times since July, with the most recent incident occurring on Oct. 21.

The stores attempted to thwart the robbers by hiring loss prevention guards but the suspects started pushing past them, police said.
