Police looking for Pittsfield Rite Aid pharmacy robber

By Dawn Gagnon, BDN Staff

PITTSFIELD, Maine — Police and personnel from the Somerset County Sheriff’s Department and the Maine State Police are on the lookout for a man who reportedly robbed the Rite Aid pharmacy Wednesday night and got away with prescription drugs.

The robbery occurred about 7:40 p.m. when a man wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, a tan baseball hat, sunglasses, black pants and black gloves came into the Somerset Avenue pharmacy and gave the pharmacist a note demanding prescription drugs and a bag, Pittsfield police Sgt. Timothy Roussin said Wednesday night.

Though the robber did not claim to have a gun, the pharmacist told police he believed the robber might be armed because of a bulge under his clothing and the manner in which he was behaving, Roussin said.

The robber is described as a white male between 5 feet 6 inches and 5 feet 9 inches tall and of medium build, Roussin said.

The suspect is believed to have left the store in a small, dark-colored car that appeared to have two people in the front and one person in the back. He remained at large as of 10 p.m.
