The suspect walked to the pharmacy inside the CVS at 10776 Westview Parkway at about 5:40 p.m. Saturday, jumped the counter and told the employee to give him pills, said Officer Robert Heims of the San Diego Police Department.
“The employee put an unknown amount of pills into a bag,” Heims said. “The suspect took the bag, jumped the counter and ran out the front door.”
The suspect was last seen running eastbound across the parking lot, he said. He was described as a thin black man, 5-feet-8 to 5-feet-10 inches tall, wearing a baggy black hoodie, black pants and tan shoes.
The San Diego Police Department urged anyone with information regarding the robbery to call Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477.
