Mesa Police Seek Assistance In Identifying Robbery Suspect

February 24, 2009

The Mesa Police Department is seeking assistance in identifying a male who robbed a pharmacy located inside a Fry's grocery store in Mesa.

On Friday, February 6, 2009 at approximately 8:00 p.m., the suspect entered the Fry's grocery store located at 825 W. University Dr. The suspect walked directly to the pharmacy counter, displayed a handgun and demanded Oxycontin, Vicodin and Soma. The pharmacy clerk complied with the demands and the suspect placed several bottles in a brown paper bag he had brought into the store with him.  The suspect exited the store and was seen by witnesses getting into the passenger seat of a newer model white four door Chevrolet pick-up with tinted windows.

The suspect is described as a white male, early- to mid-20's, about 5'6" tall, 120 pounds, with short blond hair. The male was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with "Skin" in large white print on the front, dark blue jean pants, black shoes, and dark gloves.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Mesa Police Department at 480-644-2211 or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS (480-948-6377).
