Robber leaves $300 for $550 in Adderall

A would-be customer without a prescription demanded anxiety medicine from a North Idaho pharmacy Monday night, then left money on the counter before fleeing with the drug.

The man asked a pharmacist at Walgreens, 260 W. Honeysuckle Ave. in Hayden, for Adderall about 8:45 p.m., then told the woman "I guess I will have to rob you" when she said she couldn't give him the drug without a prescription, according to the Kootenai County Sheriff's Department.

The man left with about 100, 30 mg pills valued at $550, according to the Sheriff's Department, after placing $300 on the counter.

The robber did not display a weapon, and the pharmacist described him as "calm" to deputies, according to a report.

The man is described as white with a mustache, in his mid- to late-40s with a white and red baseball hat, a tan Carhart jacket, a green shirt, blue jeans and white shoes. He appeared 5-foot-9 to 5-foot11, about 220 pounds.

The man left in a black 4-door Toyota, possibly an Avalon or Camry, with a rear spoiler.

The same Walgreens was robbed of OxyContin Sept. 30. Read about it here.
