PHOENIX (CBS5) -
A pharmaceutical company is offering a cash reward for information leading to the arrest of a suspect believe responsible for an armed robbery at a Phoenix pharmacy on Sept. 17.
Purdue Pharma L.P. ponied up a $2,500 reward after the robbery at Rosy's Pharmacy, 111 E. Northern Ave., the third time in recent months the pharmacy was victimized by armed robbers looking for Oxycontin.
Police continue to look for the suspects.
Silent Witness said the most recent case was Sept. 17 about 1:30 p.m. The suspect demanded Oxycontin, but by the time the employee went to the back of the pharmacy to get it, the suspect had taken off with a box of Prilosec from the pharmacy counter.
The suspect is described as white, 5'4'' to 5'6'' tall and between 140 and 150 pounds. He was wearing a black baseball cap and a black T-shirt.
The previous day, a suspect came into the pharmacy holding a black handgun in his left hand and a plastic bag in his right hand. He jumped over the counter and demanded "Oxy" from the safe. He fled in a full-size SUV with dark-tinted windows, heading northbound on 12th Street and Northern Avenue.
The suspect in a Sept. 16 robbery is described as white, 5'10'' tall and between 180 and 200 pounds. He's believed to be in his 30s and has dark hair. He was wearing a black jacket and black gloves.
On July 22, the pharmacy was robbed by two men wearing sunglasses and dark clothing.
Witnesses said the suspects jumped over the counter and forced the workers to the safe in the back of the store where they were held at gunpoint until the safe was opened. The suspects took prescription drugs from the safe and fled, according to police.
One of the suspects is described as a 25-year-old Hispanic man, 5'8'' tall and between 150 and 180 pounds. He was last seen wearing a black baseball cap, sunglasses, white shorts and a "Bear Down" shirt.
