Police: Man steals pain reliever prescriptions from Rock Hill pharmacy


ROCK HILL, SC (FOX 46 WJZY) — The Rock Hill Police Department is searching for a suspect who stole a number of pain reliever prescriptions from a local pharmacy Wednesday night. 

The robbery happened at 9:58 p.m. at the Walgreens located at 1008 Oakland Ave. in Rock Hill. 

Officers said a man walked into the store and headed to the back pharmacy counter, then walked away. When he came back, he passed the pharmacist a note saying he had a gun and a list of drugs he wanted. 

The man told the female pharmacist to “go get the drugs” while holding his hand under his sweatshirt, as if he had a weapon. 

The woman retrieved a bottle of Oxycodone that had 100 pills in it and two boxes of Suboxone with 100 pills in each. The man said “he needed more.” The woman acted like she was searching for more pills and told him they had no more of what he wanted. 

The suspect asked for his note back and fled the scene. 

Police said the suspect had also asked for Opana in the note, but the pharmacist did not give it to him. The suspect is described as a white male in his 30s, with light brown hair, anywhere from 5’11” to 6’1″ tall. He was last seen wearing a Bennie, a red hoodies and jeans. 

This case remains open and active. Anyone with information is asked to call the Rock Hill Police Department at (803) 326-3860.
