The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the suspect in two attempted robberies of prescription drugs at locations in South Riding and Chantilly.
The incidents were reported between 6:45 and 7:05 p.m. on Oct. 23. A man armed with a box cutter jumped the pharmacy counter at Giant Foods in the Riding Plaza and demanded prescription medications. The suspect grabbed the items from the pharmacist and fled the store.
While at Giant, Deputies were told a man matching the suspect’s description had also attempted to rob the CVS Pharmacy on Pinebrook Road. The suspect left that store empty-handed.
The suspect in both cases is described as a white male, 35 to 40 years old with a light goatee. He was wearing a dark, hooded sweatshirt, brown khaki pants, tan shoes and dark gloves.
Detectives are asking for the public’s assistance to help identify the suspects. If you have any information regarding the suspect’s identity, you are asked to contact Detective C. Pickrell at 703-777-1021.
