A $50,000 reward was announced Thursday for the capture of a drugstore desperado who robbed 13 Philadelphia-area pharmacies of prescription drugs and money.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) announced a $10,000 reward Thursday for "information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible." Rite-Aid posted an additional $40,000 reward, administered through the Citizens Crime Commission, for the robberies at Rite-Aid locations.
The collective value of the drugs and money stolen was not immediately available.
As seen in security-camera footage from at least four locations, the thief is a white male of average build, approximately 5 feet, 8 inches to 6 feet in height. The joint investigation involves the ATF, Philadelphia Police Department, Abington Township Police Department, and Borough of Glenolden Police Department.
