LYNNWOOD — Police are looking for a man who robbed a pharmacy at gunpoint and stole Oxycontin pills, a painkiller that is among the strongest available by prescription.
The man, who appeared to be white and in his early 20s, entered a Walgreen’s pharmacy at Highway 99 and 168th Street SW in Lynwood just before 9 a.m. today, Lynnwood police spokeswoman Shannon Sessions said.
The man asked the pharmacist for Oxycontin, then left, Session said.
The man wore a stocking cap that was covered by a hooded sweatshirt, dark aviator-style sunglasses and cotton gloves.
Anyone with information about the incident should call Lynnwood Police Detective Jerry Rittgarn at 425-744-6924
