Police investigating armed robbery at Mt. Hermon Discount Pharmacy

SALISBURY, Md. –  Investigators in the area are still looking for the man responsible for holding up a local pharmacy on Thursday night.

Detectives and officers looking for clues was the scene outside the Mount Hermon Discount Pharmacy just before 6 p.m..

That’s just minutes after a man ordered employees to the ground threatening them with what police are calling a semi-automatic handgun.

He stole items from shelves and ran away.

Salisbury Police Department Captain Rich Kaiser said, “He fled toward rear of business which would be toward Route 50.”

Shaken up, a local store manager tells us that in his 12 years working here he’s never seen something like this.

While the suspect didn’t hit his store B&B Music Mike Jarrell says it’s still unsettling.

Jarrell said, “We’re all neighbors here so we look out for each other and try to keep each other secure and safe and so when something like this happens, it makes you worry a bit.”

Officers are searching for a man wearing a black sweatshirt with white lettering.

He’s believed to be 18-20 years old and is between 5’5″ to 5’7″ tall.

Captain Kaiser also said, “If you were in that area between 5:30-6:00 Thursday night and happened to see someone running that looked unusual please call our detectives.”

Police are saying that there isn’t a threat to the public and are calling this an isolated incident.

Detectives will continue to work with businesses in the area to try and get more answers.

If you have any information call police at 410-548-3165.
