Eastern New Orleans drug store robber sought

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - New Orleans police want to put a name with the face seen in a surveillance picture taken at the Walgreens on Chef Menteur.

Investigators say the man held up the business Sunday afternoon, Dec.13.

Police say he approached the pharmacy cashier and said he had a prescription to pick up, then indicated he had a gun and demanded money.

When the cashier ran to the back of the pharmacy, investigators say the man lifted his shirt, pulled the gun and again demanded money and got away with an undetermined amount of cash.

If you recognize the man, described as in his 30s with a beard and glasses, contact the NOPD or call Crimestoppers at 822-1111.
