CULLMAN – The CVS Pharmacy at 1906 Cherokee Ave. SW in Cullman was robbed Thursday night, and the Cullman Police Department is asking for the public's assistance- HAVE YOU SEEN THIS VEHICLE? The suspect's car has a white driver's side door.

According to CPD Lt. Gene Bates, the lead investigator, no CVS employees were physically harmed in the incident.

Bates said the suspect, a male, entered the store at approximately 8:10 p.m., demanding oxycodone.

"He came in, demanding oxycodone," said Bates. "He did get 32 pills."

Bates said employees believe the suspect was wearing a disguise. In surveillance videos and images, the suspect appears to be wearing a mask.

He said the scene was processed Thursday night, and that Sgt. David Nassetta and Sgt. Todd Chiaranda are involved in the investigation.

"The best chance we have of finding him is the vehicle," said Bates. "If someone recognizes the vehicle or knows where it is, please contact the police department."
