Suspects Captured on Surveillance Video

Los Angeles:   The Los Angeles Police Department is asking for the public’s help to identify and locate two suspects responsible for robbing a Sherman Oaks pharmacy.
On Nov. 6, 2010, at about 10:40 a.m., two men walked into a pharmacy in the 12900 block of Magnolia Boulevard and stole medication.  The first suspect entered the pharmacy alone and walked behind a counter where he ordered employees to the ground.  A few seconds later, a second suspect came in and removed several medicine bottles from shelves.

Both suspects are described as African American males.  The suspect who entered the pharmacy first was about 6 feet tall and weighed about 200 pounds.  He was wearing black pants, a black shirt with a white long-sleeve undershirt, white shoes and a black baseball cap.  He also may have had a goatee.  The second suspect was about 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighed about 140 pounds.  He was wearing a hooded, black pullover shirt, black pants and white shoes.  He also covered his face with a blue bandana, wore large, football-style gloves and a brown satchel over his shoulder.
