Three police departments appealed for help Friday to identify an armed robber who has targeted pharmacies since March, handing clerks notes for a variety of drugs.
Investigators say they believe the same bandit has hit four pharmacies in Flower Mound, Lewisville and Highland Village, the most recent happening Thursday night right across from the Flower Mound police station.
On Friday, police released photographs of the robber in the Lewisville holdup and video from the Highland Village robbery.
The pharmacies that have been robbed are:
March 12: Flower Mound Pharmacy, 1001 Farm Market Road 1171, Flower Mound. 11 a.m.
May 21: Walgreens, 1103 W. Farm Market Road 3040, Lewisville. 9:40 a.m.
June 29: Walgreens, 2360 Justin Road, Highland Village. 1:49 p.m.
Thursday night: Walgreens, 1101 Farm Market Road 1171, Flower Mound. 7:34 p.m.
Witnesses described the bandit as a white man in his mid-20s, 5-foot-9, 175 pounds, with short brown hair and wire-framed rectangular glasses. He wore a camouflage baseball hat and jacket as well as red-and-white cloth gloves and grayish-brown pants.
Investigators said that the bandit has handed each clerk a note stating that he had a gun and not to call police. The robber has partially pulled the handgun out of his jacket to show the clerk. The notes have also demanded a variety of drugs, police said.
