Two bottles of pain medication were stolen during an armed robbery of the Walgreen’s pharmacy in Fenton on Dec. 7, said Chief of Police Rick Aro. During the theft, the man produced a black semi-automatic handgun but didn’t make any overt threats other than having the weapon in his hand, police said.
The man entered the Walgreen’s store at 8 p.m. Dec. 7 and handed the pharmacy clerk a note announcing the robbery, Aro said. At one point, the man spoke and asked for pain medication. After obtaining the medication, he ran from the store and fled to the north.
The suspect is described as a white male, approximately 5’8” tall and weighing approximately 170 pounds. He wore a black cap, black sunglasses, bright green hooded sweatshirt with number 22 on the back and tan cargo pants.
