Niagara Police report that a suspect is still on the loose after the armed robbery of a St. Catharines pharmacy last night (Feb. 21).

At 10:50 pm, police were called to a Scott St. pharmacy, located between Niagara and Vine Streets, after a suspect armed with a handgun allegedly demanded a pharmacist give him drugs and cash.

Police say the suspect left on foot.

No one was injured over the course of the incident.

Believing the suspect ran north toward the Regent Dr. area, police conducted a search that included the canine unit, but did not locate the outstanding person.

Police are asking area residents and businesses to review their CCTV footage “for imagery that may assist in this investigation.”

The suspect is described as a white male, 30 years old, 6-foot and 200 pounds. He was last seen wearing a dark blue winter toque, dark blue winter jacket, black sweatshirt with white lettering, camouflage pants and brown shoes. (See picture above and below.)
