JAMIACA — A thief robbed a Jamaica pharmacy and held the pharmacist at gunpoint to steal bottles of pills and cash, according to the NYPD.
The pharmacist was forced to place at least eight pint bottles of Promethazine, 600 pills of Oxycodone and $3,600 in cash from the register in an Adidas bag for the robber, police said. The holdup occurred at the Aly-Marc Pharmacy at 179-41 Hillside Ave., which is next to the subway station, said police.
The suspect then fled eastbound to the F train and police were able to capture an image of the man from a surveillance video.
They described the suspect as a light-skinned male, between 27 and 28 years old, who is about 5-foot-6 inches. Police believe the suspect is approximately 130 pounds.
He was last seen wearing a blue jeans jacket, a gray baseball hat, a black wig and was holding the Adidas bag.
