Police try to ID suspects in metro Phoenix pharmacy heists
PHOENIX -- A reward of up to $1,000 is being offered to help identify two suspects believed to be involved in more than a dozen armed robberies at Phoenix-area pharmacies.
Authorities said the suspects have committed 15 robberies at Fry's, CVS and Walgreens pharmacy locations in Chandler, Tempe, Mesa and Scottsdale between March 25 and June 22.
The suspects enter the business and immediately demand painkiller drugs with the threat of a weapon. In one incident, a handgun was displayed.
Authorities said about half of the robberies have occurred at pharmacy drive-through windows.
