PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. (Nov. 18, 2008)—Police in Calvert County are looking for at least one man who entered two separate pharmacies in recent weeks and demanded what police called a "popular pain medication." One of the robberies was successful. No one was hurt in either incident.

The most recent incident occurred on Monday just before 2:00 p.m. at the Giant store located on Rousby Hall Road in Lusby. Witnesses told police that an unknown white male approached the pharmacist, inferred that he possessed a handgun, and demanded a popular pain medication. The suspect was denied the medication and he fled the store.

Police describe the suspect as 5'06"-5'08", thin built, white male with dirty blond facial hair wearing a light gray hooded sweatshirt with "Hershey's" across the chest and dark pants. The man was seen leaving in a silver Nissan Maxima with tinted windows.

The first incident occurred on Oct. 30 at approximately 10:50 a.m. at the Friendly Pharmacy, located on Town Square Drive in Lusby. Police say a man matching the description of the suspect in Monday's incident entered the pharmacy displaying a 6-8" kitchen knife and demanded a popular pain medication. Store personnel complied with the request and the suspect left with an unknown amount of the medication.

A red Chevy S-10 Extreme was seen leaving the scene, say police.
