A young woman who robbed a Spokane pharmacy of OxyContin Sunday was caught on surveillance video, and the company that makes the drug is offering a reward for information that leads to her capture.

Purdue Pharma LP is offering up to $1,000 for tips that help arrest the robber, who’s described as Hispanic, 5-feet tall, 100 pounds with a hooded sweatshirt.

She handed the pharmacist at Rite Aid, 5520 North Division Street, a note demanding OxyContin at 11:31 p.m. and fled in a black, 4-door mid-sized SUV, according to Crime Stoppers.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS, or submit tips online at

Tipsters do not have to leave a name but should provide a code name or number.
