Man robs Fayette pharmacy of painkillers, cash

Wednesday, Nov. 13, 2013, 5:48 p.m.
 

State police have released surveillance footage of a man who said he was armed when he robbed Valentine's Pharmacy in Fairchance last week, taking painkillers and cash.

According to police, a white man entered the pharmacy through the front door on Friday, shoved an employee into a desk and demanded “Oxy's,” or oxycodone. The man told the employee that he had a gun in his gray and black backpack, police said. The suspect then took approximately $350 from the employee, who had just closed out a register.

Police said the man fled through the back entrance after spotting headlights at the front of the store.

Surveillance footage showed the suspect was between 5 feet, 10 inches and 6 feet, 2 inches tall and weighed 145 to 160 pounds. Police said he wore a black paintball-style mask or helmet with goggles, a light gray zip-up fleece with dark-colored shoulders and pockets, a fluorescent yellow T-shirt, gray jeans, and black sneakers with black and white soles.

Police also said Valentine's Pharmacy will no longer carry oxycodone.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police.
