According to a Myrtle Beach Police Department incident report, the robbery happened on Jan. 16 at the pharmacy located at 6617 N. Kings Hwy. An employee told law enforcement the suspect came to the drop-off counter and slid a note to her written in red ink.
“(The) victim stated she didn’t even read the note because she figured out what was going on and proceeded to tell other employees in the pharmacy what was happening,” the report stated.
According to law enforcement, the suspect told the employees he needed drugs and only had 10 seconds. The man reportedly said he had a gun while his hand was in his pocket.
The suspect was given two bottles from the safe, at which time he left the store.
According to information on the MBPD’s Facebook page, the suspect is identified as Matthew James Evans. He is wanted for armed robbery.
Anyone with information as to his whereabouts is asked to call the MBPD at (843) 918-1382.
