Mont. Co. Police looking for bandaged man who robbed pharmacy

WASHINGTON – Police are asking the public to help identify a bandaged man who robbed a CVS Pharmacy in Montgomery Village on Christmas Eve.

Montgomery County Police say around 8:45 p.m. Dec. 24, the suspect entered the CVS in the 19000 block of Montgomery Village Avenue and said he had a gun.

The suspect then handed employees a note demanding drugs and the employees complied.

The suspect is described as a white male, about 25 years old, between 6 feet and 6 feet 3 inches tall and weighing between 200 and 230 pounds.

The suspect had bandages wrapped around his head and his arm wrapped in a sling. He was wearing tan pants and a blue sweatshirt.
