Photos show robber’s clothes; tips sought

Crime Stoppers if offering a reward for tips that help identify the masked gunman who robbed a pharmacy of OxyContin last week. 

Detectives released photos of the jacket and a knit hat used as a mask today in hopes someone will recognize them and call for the reward.

Police found the items in a dumpster behind a school district building. The robber ran north to the building after leaving the Albertsons at Trent and Argonne with stolen OxyContin about 9:10 a.m. on July 9.

The man had a black semi-automatic handgun he kept pointed at an employee. He'd entered the store wearing a dark hooded Hurley jacket with the hood up, along with gray or faded denim jeans.

"He was hunched over with his arms crossed as if he was sick or injured," according to a news release. 

The man was described as in his early to mid-20s, 6-feet tall to 6-foot-5.

Anyone with information on the robbery is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or submit tips online.

Tipsters don't have to leave their name to collect a reward but should leave a code name or number.
