Two men used a drive thru window to steal Oxycontin from a Greenwood-area CVS store, with one of the men brandishing a gun while telling workers to hand over the drugs.
The robbery at the store on 402 Market Place Dr. was reported just before 8 p.m. on Thursday.
According to the pharmacy assistant, a man dressed in dark clothes approached her with a gun, yelling for her to get on the ground and ordering the pharmacist to open the drive thru window. A second man with “a deep voice” demanded Oxycontin from the store’s safe, according to the police report from the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office.
The pharmacy assistant said the man in dark clothing kept walking around to make sure she didn’t get up.
The pharmacist told investigators that she saw her assistant lying on the floor and opened the drive thru window. The second man wore a light-colored sweatshirt and mask. The pharmacist said both suspects appeared to be white. The second man filled a black backpack with drugs from the safe, and asked the pharmacist if she’d hit an alarm. She told him no, the report said.
The second man then asked for a different medicine, but the first man kept telling him “just to go.” Both left through the drive thru window.
Witnesses reported seeing a white Chevy passenger car speed away from the store. Investigators stopped a vehicle matching that description shortly after the robbery, but found two African-American men in that car. The suspects in the store robbery were white.
