at Two Sterling Pharmacies
Loudoun County, VA –
Detectives from the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office are working to identify a suspect involved in one robbery and one attempted robbery at two separate pharmacies in Sterling today.
At 11 a.m. November 20, a male suspect entered the Rite Aid located in the 46000 block of Cedar Lake Plaza and handed the pharmacist a note which implied he had a gun. The note demanded prescription medication. The suspect left empty-handed. Shortly after 12 p.m., it is believed the same male suspect entered the CVS located in the 400 block of Enterprise Street. He again handed the pharmacist a note implying he had a gun and demanded prescription narcotic medications. The suspect was given prescription medication before fleeing.
The suspect is described as a white male and was wearing a white hooded sweatshirt with black strips, a red baseball hat with a “Make America Great Again” emblem, sunglasses, black pants and black shoes.
Anyone with any information about these cases is asked to contact Detective M. Bush of the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office at 703-777-1021. You may also submit a tip through the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office app. The Loudoun Sheriff app is available on the iTunes App Store and Google Play.
