SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Police need help finding a man who allegedly robbed two drugstores Sunday afternoon.

Officials said the suspect entered a Walgreens near Shea Boulevard and Scottsdale Road at about 4:30 p.m., displayed a handgun to the pharmacist and demanded Oxycodone.

Police said he left on foot from the store and made the same demand to a CVS pharmacy on Bell Road and Thompson Peak Parkway half an hour later.

The suspect left with pills from both stores. There were no injuries at either location.

The suspect is described as Hispanic or white, between 5 feet 8 inches and 6 feet 3 inches tall, 220 pounds, and possibly in his early 30s. He was last seen unshaven, wearing a black or gray sweatshirt with a hood, dark shorts with white stripes and white shoes.
