Police are investigating Thursday robbery incidents at two pharmacies in Pleasanton. The first incident occurred at the Safeway at 6790 Bernal Ave. Police said the suspect entered the store at 1:25 p.m. and gave the pharmacist a note that indicated he had a gun.
Police said the suspect demanded narcotics medication, but the pharmacist was able to convince the man she didn’t have access to the medications, and the suspect fled the store on foot. At 2:05 p.m., a man matching the description of the suspect who tried to rob the Safeway successfully robbed the pharmacy inside the Walmart at 4501 Rosewood Drive. Police said the suspect presented a note claiming he had a gun during the robbery.
The suspect is described as a male 18-25 years old 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 8 inches tall and with a slim build. He had slight facial hair, a thin mustache and possibly a goatee. He had a bandage across his nose and was wearing a black sweatshirt with the hood pulled over his head, gray sweatpants and black shoes with white soles.
