AURORA | The Arapahoe County sheriff’s office is looking for a man who robbed a pharmacy and tried to rob another this week.
The first attempt happened around noon Saturday, March 5, at a Rite Aid in Centennial, the sheriff’s office said. Later that day, the same man robbed a Safeway pharmacy near southeast Aurora at 20153 E. Smoky Hill Road.
In both cases, the sheriff’s office said the man claimed he had a bomb and demanded several medications.
The sheriff’s office said the suspect is a white male, about 5 feet, 8 inches tall with brown facial hair. He was wearing a dark gray hat, gray sweatshirt or jacket, dark pants, dark sunglasses and a backpack. He also had gauze wrapped around his hands and some sort of tattoo on his right ring finger. The sheriff’s office said he might be associated with a silver, two-door vehicle driven by another person.
The sheriff’s office is asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 303-913-STOP.
