Police: Winston-Salem Walgreens robber believed to be connected to Salisbury Walgreens robbery

Police say a man who recently robbed a Winston-Salem Walgreens may be connected to a June robbery at an East Innes Street Walgreens. A white male armed with a shotgun walked into the store located at 12311 North N.C. 150. The Davidson County store was robbed on Nov. 26 by a man wearing a hooded sweatshirt.

In the Salisbury incident, the man who was described as being over 6 feet tall, 230 to 240 pounds, jumped over the pharmacy counter and demanded pills. He walked through the main entrance and straight to the back of the store where the pharmacy was located.

In the Salisbury incident the suspect wore a camouflage pants, gray long sleeved shirt and a military-style boonie hat. He led a pharmacist to a safe where he grabbed a number of pills that included xanax and oxycodone. Customers were forced to the ground during the Salisbury robbery, but no one was hurt in the incident. No money was taken in the Salisbury incident.

No other details are available regarding the Winston-Salem incident.
