Report: Suspect adds he has a gun, after clerk ignores his demand | Crime
The Lexington County Sheriff’s Department is searching for a suspect who robbed a local pharmacy for drugs and cash, according to sheriff’s deputies.
According to an incident report, officers responded to an armed robbery call at the CVS store located at 100 Outlet Point Boulevard near Irmo on June 6.
Upon arrival, officers made contact with the pharmacy manager and a customer who witnessed the robbery, the report stated.
According to both witnesses, a white male wearing a camo jacket, red bandana, sunglasses, a white surgical mask, a blue button down long sleeve shirt, black jeans, white tennis shoes and a hat or hood entered the store, went to the pharmacy counter and demanded all the oxycodone and other pain pills.
The store employee ignored the suspect’s order, the report stated.
Deputies say the suspect then repeated his demand adding that he had a gun.
The suspect had a shotgun hiding under his shirt, the report stated.
According to deputies, the pharmacy clerk gave the suspect money from the register, one bottle of hydrocodone and several bottles of oxycodone.
The suspect ran out of the store through the parking lot to a building located behind the business, where he fled the scene in a small four cylinder car with a very loud muffler, the report stated.
Deputies say they believe the vehicle is a manual transmission because a witness heard distinct gear changes as the vehicle sped off.
According to the report, the suspect is described to be between 5’10” to 6’0”, with a thin to medium size build.
