According to police, on Nov. 6 at approximately 8:50 p.m. a robbery was reported by someone at the South Willow CVS. Arriving officers learned that a robber wearing a full-face black mask walked up to the pharmacy drop off counter and, keeping a hand close to his waistband indicating that he had a weapon, demanded that the pharmacist provide him with “oxy” in 30 seconds and “no one would get hurt,” as he proceeded to count down. The pharmacist provided an undisclosed amount of narcotics and the robber fled on foot, police said.

The robber was described as a white male approximately 5-foot-9 inches tall, thin build, between 20-25 years old, last seen wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt, Army-style camouflage cap, blue jeans, and black gloves. Police say the robber handed the pharmacist a blue or gray cloth bag to place the drugs in.
