    Police are looking for the man who robbed a CVS store in East Hartford and fled with oxycontin and oxycodone.

    East Hartford police are looking for the man with a gun who stole prescription drugs from a CVS store on Friday evening.

    A man approached the pharmacy counter at the CVS Pharmacy, located at 16 Main Street, around 7 p.m. on Oct. 11, asked for all of the oxycodone and oxycontin, then showed a black handgun that was tucked inside his waistband, police said.

    He fled with the drugs and an older model black four-door vehicle was seen driving without its headlights on.

    Police said it went over the curb and grass and traveled north on the sidewalk in front of CVS.

    The robber is about 40 to 50 years old, 5-feet-8 to 5-feet-10 and has a medium to large build, police said.

    He was wearing a black long sleeve thermal shirt, blue jeans and a dark baseball cap.

    As the robbery was occurring, a woman was at the front door of the store, speaking with the cashier and officers are trying to identify her because they think she might have information pertaining to this robbery.

    She appears to be around 35 years old. She is 5-feet-5, has black curly hair and was wearing dark framed glasses.

    Anyone with information about the robbery or who can identify the people in the photographs should call Detective Daniel Ortiz at (860) 291-7669 or e-mail dortiz@easthartfordct.gov.
