Man Demanded Narcotics At CVS Pharmacy
The suspect ran from the store when the clerk refused to hand over drugs.
Fredericksburg police are on the look out for a man accused of attempting to rob the CVS on U.S. 1 and threatening to harm the pharmacy technician if she did not hand over narcotics.
Fredericksburg Police spokeswoman Natatia Bledsoe said the incident happened at about 12:20 a.m. at the CVS at 591 Jefferson Davis Highway. The employee told police that the man presented a note that requested prescription narcotics.
"The suspect implied that he would harm the employee if she did not comply, but he did not display a weapon," Bledsoe said.
The suspect was described as a white male in his 30’s or early 40’s, about 6-feet tall and 190 pounds, with a scruffy beard or goatee and a strip of medical tape across his nose. The suspect was wearing a black and white ball cap, khaki pants, and a light grey T-shirt that was edged around the collar and cuffs with a darker color.
