It appears the suspect who held up the pharmacy at a SuperTarget Thursday, putting the store in lockdown, may have hit again.

The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension crime alert says, the suspect in the recent hold up pulled out a gun and demanded prescription drugs. It is similar to the armed robbery at Target Thursday.

This time it happened just after 6 p.m. Friday in the CVS Pharmacy on the 1400 block of Robert Street South in West St. Paul.

The suspect left the area in a green Pontiac Grand AM, according to the BCA crime alert.

Officers conducted a search around CVS, but found nothing.

Officials describe the suspect as a white man, wearing all black with a ski mask and white tennis shoes. He’s about 5-feet, 8-inches tall and weighs 150-170 pounds.

Anyone with information should call 911.
