LAFOLLETTE (WATE) - LaFollette police are looking for the man who robbed an area pharmacy.

Pharmacist Robert Gross told police a man entered the Riggs Drug Store on East Central Avenue with a silver gun and demanded Oxycodone pills.

Gross told him he didn't have any, but the man insisted, asking two to three more times.

The pharmacist gave the suspect an undisclosed amount of money out of the cash register, which the suspect placed in a small bag before fleeing.

The suspect is described as a white male wearing a gray hoodie with something green on the upper left and right sleeves and chest area, carpenter-style blue jeans, and a blue handkerchief over his face.

The man was thinly built and appeared to be between 23 and 25 years old.

Anyone with information is asked to call LaFollette police at (423) 562-8331.
