Charleston County sheriff’s deputies are searching for a woman who they said walked into a Walgreens store and stole several Oxycodone pills.
Deputies were called on Friday to the West Ashley store at 3621 Savannah Highway concerning a robbery that took place around 7:30 p.m., Maj. Jim Brady said.
Witnesses reported that a woman approached the store’s pharmacy and displayed a note demanding that they give her Oxycodone, Brady said. The woman then fled the store with an unknown amount of pills, he said.
Investigators used K-9 units to search the back of the store and Old Charleston Road, where a waiting vehicle may have been, Brady said. Authorities, however, did not locate the woman on Friday.
Surveillance images show the suspect as being a white woman wearing a white shirt with long sleeves, black pants, flip flops, sunglasses and a black cap. The woman also wore blue surgical-type gloves, Brady said.
Anyone with information about the woman or the robbery can call the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office at 202-1700 or Crime Stoppers at 554-1111.
