No charges after driver smashes window of CVS on E. Monroe Avenue

No charges have been made against a driver who smashed a window at a CVS in De Ray late Thursday afternoon.

Police said the driver had wooden boards in the back of his truck, which struck the window of the store at 415 E. Monroe Avenue as he backed up from his parking space. No one was injured and the driver stayed at the scene.

An employee at the store said that the incident occurred at around 4:45 p.m. and sounded like an explosion.

“I didn’t think it would sound like that,” the employee said. “There was this big boom, and then you heard the glass shatter later.”

This is the second incident of a person driving into a storefront in the area in the last few weeks. A man was recently arrested in allegedly rammed his car into the Verizon store near Potomac Yard.
