Representatives for the Pleasanton Police Department have confirmed they are on the lookout for a male suspect who allegedly tried to rob a local pharmacy. When captured, authorities say he’ll be booked and processed at the Santa Rita Jail.
According to reports, the suspect entered a Safeway Store pharmacy just before 1:30 p.m. last Thursday. Although it’s unclear whether the suspect had a firearm, he passed the pharmacist a note indicating he did.
The note also demanded that employees turn over narcotic medications. The pharmacist on staff was able to convince the suspect they were not able to access the types of pills he was seeking; this prompted the suspect to make a run for it.
The same man is believed to have attempted a second robbery at a Walmart about 30 minutes later. Police reports show the suspect passed along the same note and once again demanded prescription narcotics. This time he was able to make off with an undisclosed amount of medication.
The suspect is described as being a white male who is between the ages of 18 and 25 years old. Anyone who believes they have information that could lead to his arrest is asked to call the Pleasanton Police Department.
