Suspect sought in Greenwood CVS robbery

Police are searching for a man they say robbed a pharmacy in the Center Grove area.

At 9 p.m. Wednesday, a man passed a note to an employee demanding drugs at the CVS Pharmacy at 640 S. State Road 135, just north of Smith Valley Road.

The man implied he had a weapon but did not show one, said Kortney Burrello, spokeswoman for the Greenwood Police Department.

After getting prescription drugs, the man headed west on Smith Valley Road. Police did not get a description of the car, Burrello said.

Witnesses said the man was about 5-foot-6 and 140 pounds, with short hair and a thin mustache, Burrello said.

Police are investigating.
