Attempted robberies of local pharmacies may be linked

KINGMAN - A man matching the same description in two attempted armed robberies of Kingman pharmacies has evaded police and is still on the loose.

The two attempted robberies of a specific narcotic drug occurred within an hour Wednesday and may be connected, according to law enforcement.

According to Mohave County Sheriff's Office Public Information Specialist Trish Carter, a white male with dark, curly brown hair between the ages of 23 and 30 entered a pharmacy at about 1:20 in the 4400 block of Bank Street.

He displayed a gun and asked for a narcotic drug.

The man, who is between six-feet-two-inches and six-feet-three-inches tall and 170 and 180 pounds soon fled on foot without any drugs.

The Sheriff's Office and a Kingman Ranger helicopter searched for the unshaven man wearing a black stocking cap, a black shirt with a zip up hoody, dark pants and dark sunglasses with mirror lenses, but did not locate him.

Around 2:15 p.m., the Kingman Police Department investigated an attempted robbery at a pharmacy located in the 3400 block of Stockton Hill Road.

According to a news release, the suspect entered the store and confronted pharmacy employees, telling them he had a gun.

The suspect fled on foot without obtaining any drugs.

He is described as a white male in his mid 20s and clean-shaven with brown hair. He was wearing a tan colored beanie, blue jeans and white shoes.

According to the release, the suspect got into a new model gold or tan colored four-wheel-drive Jeep-type vehicle with Nevada license plates. The vehicle was being driven by another male suspect and was last seen heading northbound on Stockton Hill Road.
