Pharmacy robberies may involve same suspect

OAKWOOD - Oakwood Police Tuesday afternoon released details in a pharmacy robbery they're investigating, similar to one that happened in the Hall County Tuesday morning.

Investigators with Oakwood went public with their case after the Hall County crime unfolded.

Investigator Danny Sridej said their case happened over three months ago at the CVS Pharmacy on Winder Highway. The description is similar to the robber at the Ingles store pharmacy on Winder Highway in the county Tuesday morning.

"It turned out to be the same suspect, that's why we had to release our photograph out today," Sridej said.

He'd said police have been working their case, sending evidence and prints to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

The Oakwood case happened at closing time, according to Sridej. He said the suspect entered the pharmacy and asked the pharmacist for Lortab and Percocet. Sridej said he then walked behind the counter and grabbed drug bottles and filled prescription bags before leaving.

"No one was hurt. They pretty much let him take what he wanted and take off with it," Sridej said.

The CVS suspect is described as a white man in his late 30's. Police believe he's 6'03" to 6'04". Sridej said the man was wearing glasses and a green John Deere baseball cap.

Similar to the Hall County suspect, the CVS robber wore white gauze on his left eye and on his right cheek. The getaway vehicles are also similar.

Sridej said the CVS surveillance video showed a silver or white passenger vehicle.

Oakwood Police asked anyone with information in the CVS case can call the police department at (770) 534-2364.
