Police: Man said ‘I’m sorry’ before robbing Walgreens pharmacy in Summerville
A man who robbed a Walgreens pharmacy in Summerville Tuesday first apologized to employees before demanding pills, police said.
Police officers were dispatched to the pharmacy at 1120 N. Main St. concerning a robbery, an incident report states.
Surveillance video showed a man walk into the store shortly before 6:30 p.m. wearing a black Planet Fitness shirt and dark shorts with white stripes down the sides, police said.
Store employees did not notice the man at first, but told police they did remember seeing him walk into a bathroom. The robber came out of the bathroom a short while later and walked toward the pharmacy counter, police said.
“I’m sorry to do this to you,” the man said before demanding that the pharmacists hand him Opana and oxycodone within the next two minutes.
He counted down aloud as the pharmacists grabbed three pill bottles, according to the incident report. The robber kept his left hand in his pocket as though he was holding a weapon, police said.
The man apologized again before fleeing the store.
