The snowy weather didn't stop a man from robbing the Walgreens on Richmond Road in Lexington a little before 6:00 in the morning on December 13th.

"A tall male, approximately 6'3" to 6'4", very thin, about 180 pounds and dressed in blue jeans and a grey hooded sweatshirt pulled up over his head approached the pharmacy, jumped over the counter, and demanded from the pharmacist from oxycodone pills. The suspect displayed a black automatic handgun," says Detective William Persley with Lexington Police.

He's caught on camera entering the store and heading toward the pharmacy area, where he makes away with more than 700 Oxycontin pills. A witness in the area told police he left in a truck.

"it was a brown or tan Ford pickup truck," says Detective William Persley.

Police are hoping you know who this is.
