Police are still looking for the man that stole a quantity of prescription drugs from the CVS pharmacy on Main Street in Westbrook Saturday morning.

Police said at about 11:15 a.m. Saturday, a man described as a white male in his early 20s came into the store and demanded drugs from the pharmacists. Police said the man told store employees that he had a gun, though no gun was visible during the robbery.

The suspect got away with an unspecified quantity of drugs and was last seen running through the Westbrook Commons business park adjacent to CVS. No one was injured in the incident, police said. Police did not say what drugs were stolen from the store.

Police described the suspect as a slim, clean-cut man with short dark hair who stood 5 feet 10 inches and 6 feet tall. He was wearing a gray pullover fleece jacket with a light colored baseball cap.

Det. Sgt. Steve Lyons said police are still searching for the suspect. He said this is not the first time someone has stolen prescription drugs from a pharmacy in the city.

“It’s happened before,” Lyons said. “Certainly addicts trying to feed their habits will go to extremes to feed their addictions.”

The case is still under investigation by the Westbrook Police. Anyone with any information is asked to call the police at 854-0644.
