The incident occurred around 7:20 p.m. on March 16 at the CVS Pharmacy at 72-09 Northern Boulevard. According to the authorities, the suspect walked into the store, walked to the service counter and gave a note to an employee that read “Give me the Oxycodone and no gets hurt.”
However, police say that the store employee refused the demand, so the suspect then picked up the note and fled without taking anything.
Surveillance video and images of the suspect were released. He is described as being about 30 years old and 5’11” and was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black sweatpants, a black skull cap and grey sneakers.
Earlier this week, the Mayor announced an initiative to fight the opioid epidemic.
