Watch These Oxycontin Enthusiasts Rob Local Pharmacies at Gun Point (Video)

Posted By on Thu, Jan 24, 2013 at 8:30 AM

Here's one warning that doesn't come on medication labels. Police are looking for a pair of Oxycodone thieves who have been holding up family pharmacies and leaving with a cache of the very strong pain relievers. On Jan. 14, the pair walked into two Sunset District pharmacies in broad daylight when there happens to be limited customers inside. The first suspect, armed with a black semi-automatic handgun, forces employees toward the back of the store while the two pilfer any and all meds containing oxycodone, according to police.

Police say the first suspect is a black man, between 20 and 25 years old. He has black hair, a thin build, and is between 5-foot-8 and 5-foot-10. He was last seen wearing an Oakley baseball hat, a black ski jacket, dark pants, a blue backpack, and white gloves. He might have a pudgy nose, and could be left-handed.

The second suspect is also a black man, between 20 and 25 years old. He has a thin build, is roughly 5-foot-10, with black hair. He was last seen wearing a dark ski jacket, dark sneakers, and black-and-white gloves.
