Police: Masked Men are Responsible for 11 NYC Pharmacy Robberies
NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- New York City police are looking for two masked men suspected of robbing at least eleven pharmacies in Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan.
Among the establishments burglarized was the Fair Deal Pharmacy in Elmhurst, Queens. The store's manager says the men were looking for controlled substances including Percocet, Vicodin, and Oxycontin when they entered the premises last November.
Fair Deal's manager said the incident happened so quickly he only remembers the culprits' eyes, adding all pharmacies can do to keep safe is “be cautious.”
Anyone with information regarding the case is asked to call the NYPD Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com or texting 274637 (CRIMES) and entering TIP577.
