OxyContin stolen from Walgreen’s

A robber wearing fuzzy gloves escaped a Spokane Valley Walgreen’s pharmacy with OxyContin on Sunday after threatening two clerks with a pistol.

The robber is described as 5-foot-10 and 160 pounds in his 20s with short brown hair and a mustache, said Sgt. Dave Reagan, Spokane Valley Police spokesman. In addition to gloves, the robber was wearing a black scarf, a white hooded sweatshirt and dark jeans.

The robbery occurred about 7:30 p.m. Sunday.

The man entered the store at 15510 E. Sprague Ave. and ordered one of the pharmacy clerks to her knees while the other retrieved the pain pills, Reagan said. The man put the drugs in a Walgreen’s shopping bag and fled.

Witnesses told police the man drove off in a white sports utility vehicle parked behind a nearby snow berm, Reagan said.

Anyone with information is asked to call (509) 242-8477 or (509) 456-2233.
