Prescription Drugs Stolen During ValuCare Pharmacy Robbery
The robbery occurred six days after Walgreens on Sunset Drive was robbed of oxycodone pills.
The Waukesha Police Department is investigating a second pharmacy robbery that occurred less than a week after Walgreens was robbed during the Christmas parade.
Police were called to the ValuCare Pharmacy, 501 S. Grand Ave., at 1:46 p.m. Saturday for a report of a man robbing the store of oxycodone pills. The man, who had his face covered, told an employee he had a gun in his pocket. The clerk didn’t see a gun but noticed the man did have something in his pocket, according to the Waukesha Police Department’s call log.
The man left the scene before police were called. However, he was described as being a white male in his 20s, about five-foot six-inches tall with a dark-blue hooded sweatshirt, jeans and brown work gloves. The man left northbound, according to the call log.
Police were called to Walgreens, 221 E. Sunset Drive, on Nov. 18 after it was reported a man with a gun robbed the pharmacy of oxycodone pills.
Witnesses in the Walgreens robbery described the suspect as being a white male about 5-feet 8-inches to 5-feet 9-inches tall with weeks worth of beard growth.
The Walgreens on Sunset Drive and the ValuCare Pharmacy were both targeted in drug-related robberies in 2011. Police arrested a suspect in those cases.
