PHOENIX - Police are searching for two men suspected of robbing a pharmacy in Phoenix on two different days.
On Monday, Sept. 16, a suspect entered Rosy's Pharmacy at Northern Avenue and 12th Street around 4:45 p.m.
With a black handgun in his left hand, the suspect demanded Oxycontin from the safe.
After obtaining the drugs, he fled in a full-size SUV with dark tinted windows.
The suspect is described as a 30- to 40-year-old white male with black hair, 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighing 180 to 200 pounds.
At the time of the robbery, he was wearing a surgical mask, black jacket, pants and gloves.
Police say the very next day, another suspect attempted to rob the pharmacy at around 1:30 p.m.
In that incident, police say the suspect also entered the pharmacy and demanded Oxycontin. The employee went into the back to get the drugs and when he returned the suspect had already left, apparently taking a box of Prilosec from the pharmacy counter.
If you have any information regarding either incident, please contact Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
A $1,000 reward is being offered in each case for information leading to an arrest or indictment of the suspects.
