AUGUSTA, Maine — Augusta police are on the lookout for the man who robbed the CVS pharmacy on Stone Street late Tuesday afternoon.

The robbery happened about 4 p.m., when a man entered the drugstore, walked to the pharmacy counter and demanded prescription medication, which he was given before fleeing the store on foot, Deputy Chief Jared Mills said in a news release issued shortly after the incident. Mills said that no weapons were displayed during the robbery.

The suspect is described as a white male in his late 20s or early 30s, standing between 5 feet, 5 inches and 5 feet, 7 inches tall and weighing 150-170 pounds.

A surveillance image released by Augusta police shows the suspect wearing faded blue jeans, dark shoes, a black and white winter knit hat with ear flaps, white gloves, a white scarf, a blue neck warmer, glasses and a blue and white winter jacket.

The same pharmacy was robbed in May and February of 2012. Another CVS pharmacy in Augusta, on Capitol Street, was robbed three times in 2012.

Anyone with information about the robbery or the suspect is asked to contact the Augusta Police Department at 626-2370.
