Hicksville Pharmacy Robbed of Drugs

A masked gunman held up a Hicksville drug store and stole widely abused prescription painkillers on Monday morning, Nassau County police said.

The suspect walked into Harry’s Pharmacy on South Broadway, where he demanded Oxycodone from a 44-year-old man working in the store shortly before 10 a.m., police said.

The gunman walked behind the counter, demanded that the victim open a closed cabinet and then stole several bottles of narcotics before he fled on foot northbound on Broadway toward Roosevelt Street.

The suspect was described as a white man, 25 to 30 years old with a medium build, wearing a bright yellow jacket, dark baseball cap, white surgical mask and gloves entered.
