A surveillance photo was released by the Forest Acres police on Tuesday with an appeal to the public for help identifying a man who robbed a drug store of narcotics on Monday, January 5.
The noontime robber may have been armed, the criminal investigations unit said in a news release. He entered the pharmacy located on the 4700 block of Forest Drive and while not showing it suggested that he had a weapon when he demanded narcotics from a pharmacist. After being given a undisclosed amount of medications he fled in a white older model Oldsmobile.
The robber is described as a 5 feet 9 inches tall man with a brown beard weighing about 180 pounds. He was last seen wearing a camouflaged jacket and a black skull cap.
