On the above date and time, an unknown man entered the store and approached the pharmacy counter. The man handed the pharmacist a note which demanded specific drugs. Although a weapon was not displayed, the pharmacist was encouraged to cooperate so that no one got hurt.

Investigators remain collecting evidence and video surveillance from Rite Aid and other businesses in the immediate area. At the time of the robbery, the store was busy with customers. The pharmacy was immediately closed but intends to re-open tomorrow.
