Salt Lake City police want the public’s help finding the man suspected of robbing a Walgreens pharmacy.

Police released photos and a description of the masked suspect on Monday afternoon, hoping someone can identify him from the Feb. 19 robbery. About 11:30 p.m. that day, he is suspected of jumping the counter at the 909 E. 2100 South Walgreens and demanding Oxycontin, according to the police.

He received an unknown amount of the pain reliever, then left. The police do not know in which direction he left.

Investigators describe the suspect as a white man who is 20 to 30 years old, with a slim build, a light complexion and light reddish facial hair. He was wearing a black jacket, black pants, a black hat, mask and gloves.

The police department is asking anyone who knows him, or knows where he is, to call 801-799-3000. People can also submit anonymous tips by texting the keyword TIPSLCPD and any relevant information to 274637, with the case number #14-27935.
