Suspect demands pain pills in robbery

BLUEFIELD, W.Va. — Bluefield Police say a brazen robbery from Friday shows just how deeply drugs have affected West Virginia.

A man wearing a mask walked in to the K-Mart Pharmacy in Bluefield. The man passed the clerk a note at the pharmacy counter claiming to be armed and demanding Oxycodone. The clerk complied and he left with the pills.

Nobody was hurt in the encounter and police are looking for the suspect.
