Man robs CVS pharmacy for Adderall, claims he has gun



A man told a CVS Pharmacy employee he had a gun Tuesday morning and demanded they give him ADD medication, according to police.

Police have not located the man.

The North College Avenue CVS employee told police the man looked like he was waiting for service, so they asked for his last name. They reported he declined to give a last name before saying he had a gun and needed his medication.

He then reportedly said he would shoot everyone in the store and told the employee not to press the panic button.

Police said the employee then told the pharmacist what happened, and the pharmacist told them to put the medication in a basket on the counter.

The man took two bottles of Adderall and left the store. He never displayed the gun he claimed to have, according to employees.

He was a white man in his late 30s, about 6 feet 4 inches tall with dark hair and a high-pitched voice, according to employees. He was wearing a tan trench coat, a gray toboggan-style hat, a gray hooded sweatshirt, jeans and black tennis shoes at the time of the robbery.

Police found the trench coat and hat discarded near the intersection of West 14th Street and North College Avenue.

The Bloomington Police Department is searching for the robbery suspect.
