PARK LAYNE, Ohio (WDTN) — The Clark County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a man who robbed the Rite Aid in Park Layne Tuesday morning.

Authorities say the suspect went into the Rite Aid in the 500 block of McAdams Drive, just off S.R. 235, around 9:15 a.m. Tuesday.

The man walked to the pharmacy and showed a note demanding prescription drugs and other items. According to authorities, the suspect’s note indicated he had a weapon.

The suspect left the pharmacy with an undisclosed amount of prescription drugs and other items.

The Clark County Sheriff’s Office says the suspect is a man, standing 5’10”. He was wearing a red hoodie, khaki pants and a gray ball cap.

No one was injured during the robbery.

Authorities say the suspect may have left in a tan Bonneville or Grand Am, but that remains under investigation.

The Clark County Sheriff’s Office says there were several surveillance cameras that may have captured the suspect. Investigators are reviewing that footage to get a better description of the suspect and a possible suspect vehicle.

Tuesday’s Rite Aid robbery is the latest in a string of robberies at pharmacies in the Miami Valley. A Rite Aid in Xenia and a Walgreens in Franklin were also robbed within the past week.

The Clark County Sheriff’s Office is working with federal authorities and other local jurisdictions to determine if the robberies are connected.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call the Clark County Sheriff’s Office at 937-328-2560.
