Loudoun County, VA – The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the identity of a suspect involved in an attempted robbery and robbery at two pharmacies in the Dulles South area.
Around 7 p.m. on October 23, LCSO Deputies responded to the Giant Foods located on Riding Plaza in Chantilly. During the incident, a male suspect armed with a box cutter jumped the pharmacy counter and demanded prescription medications. The suspect grabbed the items from the pharmacist and fled the store.
As deputies were on scene at the Giant, it was learned the suspect previously attempted to commit a robbery at the CVS Pharmacy on Pinebrook Road in Chantilly. The suspect left that store empty-handed. That incident occurred around 6:45 p.m. but was not immediately reported.
The suspect in both cases is described as a white male, 35 to 40-years-old, with a light colored goatee. He was wearing a dark colored hooded sweatshirt, brown khaki style pants, tan colored shoes, and dark colored gloves at the time of the incident.
Detectives are asking for the public's assistance to help identify the suspect. If you have any information regarding his possible identity, you are asked to contact Detective C. Pickrell at 703-777-1021. You may also submit a tip through the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office app. The Loudoun Sheriff app is available on the iTunes App Store and Google Play.
