(BLOOMINGTON, IN) - Another robbery has been reported in an area pharmacy.

This time the Bloomington CVS Pharmacy has fallen victim.

Police officials say that the armed robbery consisted of the thieve walking behind the counter, displaying a handgun and then demanding all of the store's oxycontin and methadone.

Officials say that the suspect was described as looking similar to the suspect which robbed the Mitchell Pharmacy this past weekend.

Authorities say the man was wearing a hooded sweatshirt, dark coat with a brown mask covering his face and beard; they say that he is around 5 feet 10 inches tall and about 190 pounds.

Both robberies remain under investigation.

Anyone with information about the armed robberies are asked to contact their local law enforcement agency.
