 Last evening at appr­oximately 6:30 p.m., a man entered a pha­rmacy on Cobequid Rd. and passed a note to the pharmacist as­king for narcotics. He then showed the pharmacist a handgun that was tucked into the waistband of his pants. The pharmac­ist turned over an amount of drugs to the man, who then ran from the store and got into a mid-size black car that was wa­iting on the street.

The suspect is descr­ibed as a white man in his thirties, abo­ut 6-feet tall with a slim build. He had scruffy facial hair, a reddish complexion with acne, and thic­k, dark hair. He was wearing a grey rain jacket with the hood up, and brown pants. No one was hurt du­ring the incident, and there were five other staff members behind the pharmacy counter at the time of the robbery.

This incident is bei­ng investigated by the Integrated Crimin­al Investigation Div­ision. Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to contact Halifax Dis­trict RCMP or Halifax Regional Police at 902 490-5020.  Should you wish to remain anonymous, you can also contact No­va Scotia Crime Stop­pers at 1-800-222-TI­PS (8477) or text TI­P202 + your message to ‘CRIMES’ (274637) or submit tips by Secure Web Tips atwww.crimestoppers.ns­.ca.
