Our media partners at KATC-TV3 are reporting that the robbery happened just after noon on Saturday, September 19th. The robbery occurred at the Medicine Chest pharmacy.

Surveillance video from the store showed the suspect, who was armed and wearing a Chipmunk outfit, running from the store's parking lot to the back door of the store. The suspect then forced an employee back inside where they escorted the employee at gunpoint. The suspect forced the employee to fill a bag with an undisclosed amount of narcotic medication.
