Mt. Pleasant police looking for man who held up pharmacy

MT. PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) -

Police have released more details from an armed robbery which briefly locked down an elementary school in Mt. Pleasant on Monday.

According to a Mt. Pleasant Police Department incident report, the armed robbery happened a little before 9:45 a.m. at East Cooper Pharmacy, located at 913 Bowman Road.

Police said the suspect stole medication and was possibly carrying a 9mm pistol.

The pharmacy did not have surveillance equipment, but the store clerk said the man, possibly white, was wearing a camouflage jacket and blue jeans with a face mask and blue latex gloves.

The suspect stood about 5'9" and weighed about 150 pounds, according to the report.

A Charleston County Sheriff's Office K-9 was brought to the scene, but the suspect's trail ended abruptly in a parking lot next to Money Man Pawn on Frontage Road, just off Johnnie Dodds Boulevard.

Charleston County School District spokesman Jason Sakran said nearby James B. Edwards Elementary School, located on Von Kolnitz Drive, was placed on lockdown while police investigated the crime scene.

If you have any information regarding the robbery, call Crime Stoppers at 554-1111.
