Everett police ask for help identifying a man suspected of robbing pharmacies in Everett and the surrounding area in recent weeks.

Pharmacy robber strikes again
Everett police say a man suspected in four holdups returned to a drug store he robbed twice before.

By Eric Stevick, Herald Writer
EVERETT -- Police believe the same man is responsible for four pharmacy robberies in and around Everett during the past five weeks.

The latest holdup occurred shortly before noon on Monday at the Rite Aid at 10103 Evergreen Way -- the same store that was hit Nov. 3 and Nov. 14, police said.

"We believe the same person hit the same pharmacy," Everett police Sgt. Robert Goetz said. "There was no change in his M.O."

In each robbery, the man either has shown a gun or implied he had one and demanded OxyContin.

The prescription painkiller often is a target in pharmacy robberies, Goetz said.

"Whether or not they are using it themselves or they are getting a high price on the street, it seems that is the narcotic of choice," he said.

The details of the three holdups are similar to a Nov. 10 pharmacy robbery at the Albertsons store on 128th Street SW, Goetz said. That robbery is being investigated by the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office.

The suspect is described as possibly Hispanic and in his 20s. He is about 5-foot-7 and weighs 150 to 170 pounds. He has a thin mustache.

Police believe the suspect may be associated with a small, white four-door car, perhaps a white Honda that is at least 10 years old and has tinted windows, Goetz said.

Police consider him armed and dangerous.

If anyone has information about his identity, they are asked to call 911 or the Everett police.

There is a drug called Remoxy that has been trying to get FDA approval since it was first turned down in 2007. This is basically like an oxycontin that is 'tamper-resistant'. If a user tried to crush, chew, or whatever they do to get high the pill will not give them the 'feeling'. Seems no matter what the company does to make it better the FDA just won't let it go into use. It was rejected again this past summer. There are several others in the pipeline currently so keep your eyes open and once in a while Google around to see if one has been approved yet.
