A young adult male described as in his early 20’s, held up Redwood Pharmacy in Henderson Center before 3pm this afternoon. The suspect brandished a gun and pointed it at two of the female workers and demanded Oxcycontin, a powerful narcotic made from opium. He did not demand money or anything else according to an employee at the pharmacy.
Police are on the scene gathering evidence.
A witness said the suspect was skinny, a bit under 6 feet tall, had blond curly hair and was wearing a grey hoodie and black skater shoes.
The description matches that of a suspect wanted in a recent string of drug store robberies where Oxycontin was also taken.
No one was injured.
