NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

The NOPD is asking for the public's help in finding and identifying a man who may have critical information about the armed robbery of a pharmacy.

The incident happened Tuesday at Med-Pro Pharmacy in the 2600 block of South Claiborne Avenue.

At around 10:50 a.m., two masked subjects entered the pharmacy armed with guns and demanding pain medication. The employees handed the suspects several boxes of pain pills and an undetermined amount of cash and robbers fled on foot.

The individual seen in the photograph is only considered a person of interest, police said.

The investigation is ongoing.

Sixth District Detective Drew Deacon is in charge of the investigation and can be reached at (504) 658-6060.
