PHOENIX – Phoenix police are asking for the public's help identifying two suspects believed to be responsible for approximately 21 armed robberies at pharmacies.

Police said the robberies occurred at both standalone and in-store pharmacies in northeast Phoenix and Scottsdale over the past several months.

Police believe two suspects, dubbed the "OCD Bandits," alternated committing these armed robberies.

Sgt. Steve Martos said the suspects enter the store wearing a motorcycle helmet, landscape hat, fishing hat or baseball cap. They approach the pharmacy armed with a handgun and demand oxycodone from the pharmacist or employees.

Martos said the suspects have become more aggressive during these robberies.

One suspect is described as a white male, 20 to 30 years old, 5 feet 10 inches tall, 180 pounds, with slight facial hair.

The other suspect is described as a white male, 20 to 30 years old, 6 feet 1 to 6 feet 3 inches tall and muscular.

Anyone with information regarding the identity of the suspects is asked to call police at 602-262-6141 or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS to remain anonymous.
