Suspect faking injury sought in Folly Road pharmacy robbery

Posted: Updated:
CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Charleston Police are looking for a suspect who they say faked an injury as part of an armed robbery at a James Island pharmacy over the weekend.

Authorities say the robbery occurred at Rite Aid located at 325 Folly Road just before 6 p.m. Saturday. 

An incident report states the male suspect walked to the pharmacy area, where he told an employee he had a firearm and wanted prescription pills.

Police say surveillance pictures show the suspect initially wearing a sling on one arm and later swapping the sling to his other arm, making the injury appear fake.

The suspect then fled the store.

If you have any information on this incident, call Crime Stoppers at 843-554-1111.
