BOONE, N.C. -- Boone Police are investigating a Saturday night pharmacy robbery.

Around 9:30 Saturday, Boone Police responded to the Walgreens in the 2100 block of Blowing Rock Road in reference to a robbery.

Authorities say a man, believed to be in his 20s or 30s, implied he had a firearm, threatened to use it, and demanded prescription medication from the pharmacy.

The suspect is described as a white male wearing a red and black horizontally-striped jacket, blue jeans and black tennis shoes.

Police say the suspect fled the store to a nearby parking lot, where an awaiting blue or silver older-model Ford van carried him from the scene.

Officials did not specify the type of medications stolen in the robbery.

If you have any information on this case, you're asked to call Crime Stoppers at (828) 268-6959.
