(Aug. 30, 2018) Worcester County detectives investigating a pharmacy robbery at the Rite Aid in West Ocean City on Friday evening are seeking help identifying a suspect captured on surveillance footage.
Worcester County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the drug store in the 12000 block of Ocean Gateway for a reported robbery in the pharmacy at about 7:50 p.m. on Aug. 24.
Detectives allege the man captured on video entered the store, approached the pharmacy counter and presented a note demanding narcotics.
The Sheriff’s Office reported in addition to instructing the pharmacist to supply prescription medications, the suspects’ note stated failure to comply would result in violence to both the store and family members of the pharmacist.
After the suspect’s violence-laden drug demand was filled, he left the store and was allegedly seen exiting the parking lot in a Black Jeep Wrangler-style vehicle.
Any person that recognizes identify the suspect, or has information regarding this incident, is asked to contact Det. Cpl. Mark Titanski of the Worcester County Bureau of Investigation at 410-632-1111 ext. 2290 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
