In Need of a Fix
Detectives are working a robbery case and hope you might be able to help identify the suspect. He entered the CVS store at 75th Street and Metcalf Avenue on Monday, October 14th, around 6:15 pm and demanded prescription drugs from the pharmacists. The pharmacists said the man displayed a gun and, assuming it was a serious threat, they gave him the medication.

The suspect seen in the picture below left the store without harming anyone, and we don’t want anyone hurt if he commits any future robberies. If you were in the area Monday and saw anything that could help with the investigation, or if you know the identity of the man in this picture, call the TIPS HOTLINE at 816-474-TIPS or the Overland Park Police Department at 913-344-8750.
