EUGENE, Ore. - A woman in a black wig robbed the same pharmacy three times in a week - including twice in less than 24 hours when she came back after leaving the second pharma heist empty handed.
Police are asking for the public's help identifying the woman in the wig who has robbed the Bi-Mart pharmacy on W. 18th Avenue on Sept. 1, Sept. 7 and again Sept. 8.
In each case, the woman demanded prescription medication. Police have not said what kind of medication, citing the investigation.
Whatever drug she wanted, she appears to have succeeded Sept. 1 and Sept. 8; she fled the scene Sept. 7 empty handed, but returned the next morning.
The suspect is described as a white female in her late 20s or early 30s, 5-foot-5 to 5-foot-6 tall, 140 pounds, with very fair skin and short dark hair that is possibly a wig.
In some of the robberies, she is wearing large, dark sunglasses.
In all the incidents, the suspect threatened to use a weapon.
The first robbery occurred on Sept. 1 at 9:24 a.m., at the Bi-Mart, 1680 W. 18th Avenue. The suspect approached the walk-up pharmacy counter and demanded prescription medication, threatening to use a firearm. She left with some prescription medication.
The second incident happened on Sept. 7 at 10:04 a.m. at the same Bi-Mart. The suspect again came to the pharmacy window, threatened the use of the weapon and demanded prescription medication. She fled without obtaining the medication.
In the third case on Sept. 8 at 9:18 a.m., the same suspect approached the pharmacy's window and fled with prescription medication. She was wearing a tight black shirt, tight black knee-length pants and large dark sunglasses. She fled eastbound on foot.
Anyone with information in this case is asked to call Detective Dan Braziel at (541) 682-5836.
