Police are looking for the bandit who leaped over the counter while no one was looking at a Ridgewood drug store and helped himself to bottles of medication.

The NYPD released on Aug. 27 security camera images of the suspect behind the theft that took place at 6:35 p.m. on July 27 inside the Walgreens pharmacy located at 58-02 Metropolitan Ave., near Forest Avenue.

According to law enforcement sources, the crook  described as a light-skinned male with facial hair wearing a black bandana, a black hood over his head, a black jacket, black and white capri pants and black sneakers — jumped over the counter and grabbed five bottles of unidentified medication. He then exited the drug store and was last seen heading westbound on Harman Street.

The incident was reported to the 104th Precinct.
