Vergennes pharmacy hit by armed robber
VERGENNES — Vergennes police are reporting that a lone, armed suspect robbed the Marble Works Pharmacy at 187 Main St. in Vergennes last Thursday morning around 8:45 a.m.
As the Independent went to press last Friday police weren’t releasing details about what kind of property was stolen, or what the value of that property might be.
Sgt. Pat Greenslet, who responded to the call, said the suspect was carrying a handgun. The suspect didn’t make any threats to the clerk who was in the pharmacy at the time of the robbery aside from demanding that she hand over property. The clerk was the only other person in the pharmacy at the time of the robbery, police said.
The suspect was described as a man wearing a dark blue, Carhartt-type jacket and tan pants. He wore a forest green camouflage scarf or mask over his face. Late last week police did not have any details about the suspect’s vehicle or direction of travel.
Greenslet has worked for the city police department for 10 years, and said it’s the first armed robbery he’s seen in Vergennes during his time with the department.
Police are asking that anyone with information on the robbery call the Vergennes Police Department at 877-2201.
