Police Seek Identity of Pharmacy Robber
Police are asking for the public’s help identifying a suspect in two pharmacy robberies. The man is believed to have walked into two separate Rite Aid’s, making off with prescription drugs from the second.
Augusta Police say the suspect first walked into the Rite Aid on North Belfast Avenue and handed an employee a note demanding drugs. But he ended up fleeing without any pills. It’s believed the same man walked into the Rite Aid on Hospital Street about fifteen minutes later, in a different shirt and, again, handed an employee a note demanding drugs. This time, he escaped with some prescription medications.
He’s described as between 5’8″ and 5’9″ tall with tattoos on his neck. Anyone with any information is asked to call the Augusta Police Department.
