Walnut Creek Police are searching for a man wearing a baseball cap who robbed the Walgreens on North Main Street of prescription drugs Friday afternoon.
Lt. Brian Hill says the robber entered the store at about 3:40 p.m. and approached the pharmacist. He told the pharmacist he had a gun, although no weapon was seen, and demanded prescription medications. He was given undisclosed medications and fled to fled to a nearby vehicle, which was last seen going south on Interstate 680.
The suspect is described as a white male adult, average build and height. He was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, sunglasses, blue denim jeans, a baseball cap and white shoes.
There's no word yet on whether this robbery is related to a heist at the Safeway pharmacy in Walnut Creek on September 23. In that case, a white male adult, also wearing a baseball cap, handed the pharmacist a note demanding Oxycodone and Norco. He made off with five bottles of medication.
Anyone with information about either case is encouraged to call the Walnut Creek Police at (925)943-5844.
