Locked up medications thwart pharmacy robber in Beaverton
Beaverton police are investigating an attempted robbery Thursday at the pharmacy counter inside the Greenway Albertsons grocery store, 8155 S.W. Hall Blvd.
At about 5:30 p.m., a pharmacy technician reported that a Caucasian man approached the counter and presented a note demanding specific prescription medications.
The note also stated that the suspect had a weapon, although no weapon was actually seen.
The pharmacy technician could not access the medications, as they were locked up, and walked away from the suspect. The technician went into the nearby bathroom and called 911.
The suspect reportedly stayed at the counter momentarily, and then fled the store without receiving any medications.
Police responded to the scene and conducted a search of the area, but the suspect was not located.
The suspect is described as an unshaven, dark-haired white man in his mid-20s of average height and average build. The suspect wore a white cap with a navy blue sweatshirt and blue jeans.
Anybody with information on the identity of the suspect is asked to call the Beaverton police at 503-629-0111.
