The lone gunman who entered the San Ramon Valley Boulevard Walgreens store early Wednesday put his pistol on the pharmacy counter and demanded Buprenorphine, an opioid used to treat opioid addiction and pain, according to police.
Investigators said the armed robber entered the store at 8:03 a.m., produced the gun and made off with about $300 worth of the drug.
The suspect was described as a white male adult, 5’07” – 5’08”, 20-30 years old, weighing 190-200 pounds. He was wearing a grey beanie, dark sweatshirt, black pants, and white shoes. He was also wearing a blue surgical mask which covered the majority of his face. The suspect exited the store and fled on foot.
Police said they are aware the accompanying pictures are not of the best quality but there is a chance someone else may have captured better images of the gunman as he approached or left the Walgreens.
Anyone having any information pertaining to the robbery, the suspect, or information about similar type robberies is encouraged to contact the San Ramon Police Department at (925) 973-2700.
