Reward offered for robbery information
Police at about 4 p.m. Dec. 7 were called to McCullough’s Drug Store, 269 Broad St., for a report of an armed robbery. Police said a man entered the store, displayed a black semi-automatic pistol and demanded OxyContin from the pharmacist. Police said the pharmacist handed over an unknown amount of the painkiller.
The suspect is described as a white male, about 6-feet-tall and 200 pounds. He wore a black ski mask, black hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans.
