HAMPTON ROADS, Va. (WAVY) – A man accused of robbing several pharmacies across Hampton Roads has been connected to holding up other stores in Richmond and parts of northern Virginia stealing drugs and money, FBI and state police say.

Surveillance video shows the same pattern in at least seven hold ups since July, according to detectives. Investigators said a man with a white cloth over his face walks inside, pulls a gun from his waistband then demands Oxycodone pills and cash. In some robberies, he has gone behind the counter and taken other prescription drugs too.

The suspect has hit CVS stores and Rite-Aids in the state’s capital city, Fredericksburg and the northern parts of the Commonwealth, police said. Officers also said they think he’s the same one who held up the CVS on Richmond Road in Williamsburg as well as the CVS on West Mercury Boulevard in Hampton.

In the Hampton crime, authorities said the alleged robber is an African-American man with light complexion and about 5 feet 7 inches tall weighing around 160 lb. He used a white T-shirt to cover his face and had on a white baseball cap.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call the Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
