FLORENCE, Ala. – A brazen robber remains on the loose in the Shoals. Florence police would like to apprehend the person responsible for the armed robbery of a pharmacy on January 24.

These surveillance pictures from Massey Drugs on Wood Avenue were released by the Florence Police Department.

According to detectives, once he entered, the robbery suspect went straight to the pharmacy counter. Dressed in dark athletic clothing, police say he demanded employees give him all of the Opioid medication and Fentanyl patches.
