(INDIANAPOLIS) - A man jumped over the counter at an Indianapolis-area pharmacy and threatened workers with a gun before getting away with nearly $12,000 in drugs.

According to a report from the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, the man entered the Walgreens in the 5500 block of Georgetown Road on the northwest side just before 9 p.m. Tuesday. He leapt over the counter, showed workers he had a gun and then demanded drugs.

FOCX59 reports a worker placed the drugs in a bag. The thief took the pain medications Oxycodone and Oxycontin along with Vyvanse, which is used to treat Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). The man also demanded cough syrup after the worker placed the drugs in the bag, the report said.

The man ran out of the pharmacy with more than 2,300 pills worth approximately $11,900. Police said surveillance cameras captured the theft and are going through the footage for evidence.
