On October 18, 2008 at approximately 10:30 a.m., a white male entered the CVS Pharmacy at 2809 S. Sossaman Road carrying a brown paper bag. The unknown white male walked over to the pharmacy counter and handed a note to the pharmacist that stated in the bag was a bomb and he wanted Oxycontin and Oxycodone. The pharmacist complied with the suspect's demands and placed the prescription drugs inside a plastic bag. The suspect exited the store and was seen running southbound on Sossaman Road. The Mesa Police Bomb Squad responded to the scene and determined the .ce placed inside the bag by the suspect was a hoax. No one was injured in the incident.

The suspect is described as:

A white male appearing to be 6 feet tall, approximately 200 pounds, slim build with brown hair. He was seen wearing a dark colored bandana, sunglasses and a black jacket with skulls.

Anyone with information is urged to call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS (480-946-6377).
