Crime Stoppers Crime of The Week; Cash Reward Offered

OFFICIAL PRESS RELASE: On July 9th, a man wearing a hooded sweatshirt and homemade knit mask robbed the Albertsons pharmacy at Trent and Argonne.  He entered the store about 9:15 a.m., walked a circuitous route around the interior of the store, and then took the powerful pain medication Oxycontin from a pharmacy employee at gunpoint.  He later dumped the mask and sweatshirt in a dumpster behind the West Valley School District Administration Building north of the grocery.

On July 23rd, detectives believe the same man robbed the Albertsons pharmacy at 57th and Regal.  He again wore a hooded sweatshirt and mask, and again brandished a pistol at a pharmacy employee to obtain bottles of Oxycontin.  He ran to the west and then to the south from the grocery, and was picked up by someone driving a white SUV virtually identical to a 2007 or older Toyota Sequoia.

The suspect is a white male in his 20's who is 6' to 6'04" tall and thin.  In the South Hill robbery, he pulled his pistol only feet from a child, and brandished the pistol at store employees as he escaped out the western-most front doors. Law enforcement considers this robber to be very dangerous.

Anyone with information regarding this suspect or the pictured vehicle is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 509-327-5111 or 1-800-222-TIPS.  You do not have to give your name to collect the cash reward.
