Robbery at Korea Town Pharmacy Suspect’s Image Captured NR11402gb

Los Angeles:  The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) is asking for the public’s help in identifying a robbery suspect who robbed a Korea Town pharmacy about a week ago.

On August 24, 2011, at around 9:25 p.m., a White male suspect entered a pharmacy in the 3700 block of Wilshire Boulevard. The suspect presented a demand note for “Oxycontin” to the clerk, while simulating a weapon under his shirt.  Fearing for his life, the clerk complied with the suspect’s demand and handed over the potent narcotic. The suspect ran from the location on foot.

The suspect, who has blond hair, blue eyes and stands about 5 feet 11 inches tall, weighs around 170 pounds and is approximately 25 years of age.  He was wearing a brown beanie, gray hooded shirt, brown jacket, black jeans and black shoes.

Anyone with information about this incident or who recognizes the suspect is asked to call LAPD’s Olympic Area Robbery Detectives at 213-382-9493.  During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7.  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477). Tipsters may also contact Crime Stoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) with a cell phone.  All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.”  Tipsters may also go to LAPDOnline.org, click on "webtips" and follow the prompts.
