    A man carrying a gun jumped the counter at an Enfield CVS Sunday night and demanded Oxycodone.

    According to police, the man entered the CVS on Route 190 around 11 p.m. Sunday. He jumped the counter, pulled out a handgun and ordered the pharmacist to open the store's safe.

    The man then jumped out the drive-thru window and fled. Police believe he may have jumped into a vehicle that had been waiting for him.

    The robber was wearing jeans, a black jacket, red cap and gloves police said.

    It is the second pharmacy robbery in Enfield recently and police are working with nearby police departments that have seen similar crimes.

    He approached the pharmacist for help then forced his way through a small door and got behind the counter. The robber then demanded the pharmacist open the safe containing prescription drugs. He filled a garbage bag with a large amount of prescription drugs before fleeing the store, police said. The man jumped into a green station wagon, possibly a Ford, police said. The man drove north toward Enfield.

    Anyone with information on either robbery is asked to call police.
