SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) -

Officials with the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office say they are investigating a robbery at a pharmacy in Summerville.

According to authorities, the incident happened at the CVS on 1941 N. Main St. at 7:15 p.m.

Witnesses say a man drove up to the pharmacy drive-thru window and handed a store employee a written note.

The note told the employee to give the suspect a bottle of 30 milligrams of oxycodone. Authorities say the note also said that as long as the employee did as she was told "no one would be hurt."

An incident report states that the note also stated that the suspect had a gun.

The employee then told the suspect that she did not have access to the medication and would have to have the pharmacist access the medication.

The employee then had the pharmacist come over to read the note. Investigators say the pharmacist then gave the suspect an amount of oxycodone.

Authorities say the suspect then fled the scene in a dark colored sedan.

Investigators describe the suspect as a white male with brown hair, slightly unshaven and wearing a blue baseball cap and possibly a camouflage shirt or jacket.

If you have any information you are asked to call police or Crime Stoppers at 554-1111.
