Two men rob pharmacy

Boca Raton, FL On Friday, October 15, 2010 at about 1:55 p.m., officers from the Boca Raton Police Services Department received a report of a silent alarm at Boca Town Pharmacy, 7400 North Federal Highway. While officers were enroute, dispatch received information that the alarm had been tripped by employees while they were being robbed.

When officers and detectives arrived on scene, they met with the two employee victims. The first employee told officers she was behind the counter when a male wearing all black clothing, entered the store and approached her. The suspect pointed a large black, semi-automatic handgun at the victim's face and demanded money and prescription medication. As the victim and the suspect began walking to the rear of the pharmacy, where the second employee was working and the medication is kept, a second suspect entered the front of the store and remained there. The suspect forced the victim to open the safe that contained prescription narcotics, and then he removed the contents and put them into a nearby garbage can. The suspect told the employee to open the second safe which contained money. The victim said her hands were shaking so badly she was unable to open the safe. The suspect took the money that was in the register and then both suspects left the store.

Neither employee was physically injured. After leaving the pharmacy, the suspects got into a white four-door sedan and drove off in an unknown direction. Detectives believe the suspects may have cased the business for some time prior to committing the robbery. If anyone has information about this crime or may have seen this vehicle and its occupants, prior to the robbery, please call Detective Scott Hanley at (561) 338-1344 or Palm Beach County Crime Stoppers at (800) 458-TIPS.
