There is no word on whether this robbery, just after 4 p.m. at the Oak Grove Pharmacy, is connected to two other drug store robberies, September 23 and October 9, in Walnut Creek. In both those cases, no weapon was seen--although in the October 9 case at Walgreens on North Main Street, the robber said he had a gun. In the September 23 robbery at Safeway on South Broadway, the robber handed the pharmacist a note, demanding Oxycodone and Norco, and made off with five bottles of medication.
There are two suspects in today’s heist, the Mayor says. One was a white male adult with a gray hooded sweatshirt and a ski mast with tape on it. He fled to a getaway vehicle, with unknown plates, driven by a white female adult with black hair. The suspects got away with Oxycodone.
