Police seek Fort Wright Walgreens robbery suspect

FORT WRIGHT, Ky. -- Police have yet to locate a man they say robbed a Northern Kentucky Walgreens Pharmacy, threatened an employee and escaped with drugs from the store Thursday morning.

A man entered the Walgreens at 1825 Dixie Highway in Fort Wright at about 11:15 a.m., according to Sgt. Marc Schworer of the Fort Wright Police Department.

The suspect passed a note to the pharmacist that said he was armed with a gun, then he left after receiving an unknown amount of medications. Schworer said the man never actually showed a gun.

The suspect left the pharmacy in white, two-door coupe, but Schworer was unsure of the car's make or model.

Fort Wright police ask for the public's help in identifying and finding the suspect. He is described as a white male, about 6 feet tall, weighing 190-205 pounds, who may be wearing a black hat, black sunglasses, a long-sleeved khaki shirt that's unbuttoned, khaki cargo shorts and white tennis shoes.

The suspect could face first degree robbery charges, Schworer said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Fort Wright police at (859) 331-2191, Kenton County authorities at (859) 356-3191 or Crime Stoppers at (513) 352-3040.
