Police investigate robbery at Jensen's Pharmacy
Rockland — The Rockland Police Department has released surveillance photos of the alleged robber of the Jensen's Pharmacy on July 31.
Police officers from several area departments investigated a robbery at Jensen's Pharmacy on Camden Street in the Breakwater building.
A lone male subject entered the pharmacy at about 3:15 p.m. and passed a note to the pharmacist demanding drugs, according to Rockland Police Department Deputy Chief Wallace Tower. Some drugs were given to the suspect, who then left the pharmacy and ran away toward the rear of the building, Tower said.
No weapons were shown during the robbery. No one was injured, Tower said.
He said he did not know what was in the note passed to the pharmacist. He did not release the type of drugs and the amount given to the robber.
Police had sealed off the building and surrounded it with cruisers, unmarked cars and the K-9 Unit van. Tower was in charge at the scene and temporarily closed the store to customers.
The pharmacy is owned by Curtis Jensen.
Police are searching the area with a K-9 unit. The robber is described by police as 5 feet 8 inches tall, wearing a business suit and fedora. No estimated age was given. The suspect had facial hair, Tower said.
Rockland police were assisted at the scene by the Knox County Sheriff's Office, Rockport police, Maine State Police and the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency.
