MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury police are looking for an armed man who robbed the Marble Works Pharmacy of an undisclosed amount of prescription drugs at around 5:50 p.m. on Wednesday, July 24.
Police said the white male they are looking for is around 5 feet, 11 inches tall, probably in his 20s, and was wearing a green hooded sweatshirt with the hood pulled over his head. He was also sporting a baseball-style cap and dark glasses in a further effort to mask his identity. The man displayed a handgun at his waist and demanded prescription drugs from pharmacy employees, according to police. He left the store with an undisclosed amount of drugs and was last seen running south on the railroad tacks that run adjacent to the Marble Works shopping complex, police said.
The suspect was also wearing sneakers and khaki-colored pants. He was clean-shaven and was carrying a backpack, according to police.
A preliminary investigation shows no increased risk to the public of further violence, police said.
Officers searched along the railroad tracks and into Middlebury neighborhoods after the incident but did not find the assailant.
Anyone with information about the incident and/or the suspect should call the Middlebury Police Department as soon as possible at 388-3191, or Det. Kris Bowdish.by e-mail at [email protected].
