Silent Witness: Two men suspected of robbing 15 Arizona pharmacies in four months

PHOENIX - Officials are hoping to identify two suspects accused of robbing at least 15 Valley pharmacies over four months.

The pharmacy robberies were committed between March 25 and June 22.

The two suspects allegedly robbed 15 pharmacies in Chandler, Tempe, Mesa and Scottsdale, either through the drive-thru or inside. The suspects would display a weapon and then demand oxycontin. The suspects would then flee in an SUV.

"Twelve of which being CVS pharmacies, very comfortable hitting that location, that's clearly the target of choice for them.  The other two times was at a Walgreens and once at a Fry's," said Silent Witness Sgt. Darren Burch.

The first suspect is described as a white or Hispanic male, 30-40 years old, 6 feet 2 inches tall with a medium to heavy build, according to the Silent Witness release.

The second suspect is described as a male, between 22 to 29-years-old and 6 feet tall.

The suspects have been recorded wearing surgical-type masks, bandanas, baseball caps and sunglasses.

If anybody has any information on the suspects or the robberies contact Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS or toll free at 1-800-343-TIPS. Officials are offering up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest or conviction of the two suspects.
