NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A man pulled a gun on the pharmacist at a CVS pharmacy, but he wasn't looking for cash. Instead, he wanted a bag full of drugs.

The robbery happened just after 8 a.m. on Oct. 12.

A man walked into the CVS Pharmacy at 1200 S. Gallatin Pike.

He walked to the rear of the store where the pharmacist asked if he could help him.

"He demanded drugs from the pharmacist.  The pharmacist told him to leave," said Robert Russell of the Metro Police Department. "At that point, he showed the pharmacist a weapon and the pharmacist opened the safe and gave him a large quantity of drugs."

The robbery was caught on tape.

The suspect was wearing a wig and a phony beard.

He walked out of the store and turned toward Due West Avenue.

The suspect may have gotten into a silver Pontiac Grand Am or Oldsmobile Alero.

Someone saw the car leave the parking lot right after the robbery.

"It's believed the suspect got into that vehicle or it could have been a witness that might have witnessed the suspect leaving," Russell said. "And we believe he did go west on Due West because we found the wig and the false beard on the bridge west of the business."

Police are looking for a white male who is about 5 feet 10 inches tall. He weighs about 150 pounds.

The suspect was described being between 25 to 35 years old.

During the robbery, he had on a black jacket, light-colored pants and a beige baseball cap.

If anyone knows anything about the robbery, they should call Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME.
