Lower Paxton Twp. Police are investigating a robbery of the pharmacy at K-Mart, 5050 Jonestown Rd. that occurred yesterday afternoon at about 1:48 PM. A male individual entered the pharmacy and handed a note to the pharmacist in which he claimed to have a gun and demanded all of the narcotics that the pharmacy had. The pharmacist complied and the male ran from the store. He is described as an unshaven White/Male (possibly Hispanic) in his twenties with dark hair wearing a gray flat-brimmed ball cap with an oversized logo or design, dark rimmed glasses, a white zip-up hooded sweatshirt with a black-checkered pattern and dark pants. Police are collaborating with other East Shore departments to see if this robbery is related to other pharmacy robberies that have occurred recently. Attached are two photos of the individual taken by surveillance cameras.
