Suspect Suspect

Authorities are looking for a suspect who has allegedly committed five pharmacy robberies in the last two months.

Police say the man demanded Oxycodone from the pharmacies at the Safeway near Glendale Avenue and 7th Street and the Albertsons near Northern and 19th Avenues, between Dec. 27, 2012 and Feb. 18, 2013.

In the beginning, the suspect only simulated a gun, but in later robberies he showed a handgun and voiced his demands.

All pharmacy employees have done what the suspect asked and weren't injured.

Police say the suspect has fled on foot and no vehicle has been seen.

The suspect is described as a White male, 25-30 years old, 5'9" - 6', 160 - 180 lbs., wearing dark blue pullover "hoodie", black sunglasses, and blue jean pants.

Silent Witness is offering up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest.
