INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office has released surveillance photos from last week’s armed robbery at a North Lake Tahoe pharmacy.

A male suspect entered the Village Pharmacy at 898 Tanager St. at about 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, March 24, and showed the clerk a handgun. He reportedly demanded an unspecified amount of pharmaceutical products before fleeing.

None of the three employees inside at the time of the robbery were hurt, according to previous reports.

The surveillance images released Monday show the suspect donning a mask, as well as a possible suspect vehicle, according to WCSO.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic adult, approximately 6 feet tall and with a stocky build.

In an interview last week, WCSO Lt. Jeff Clark declined to comment when asked if or how much money and/or drugs were stolen, as the incident remains under investigation.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the WCSO Detective Division at 775-328-3320.

Anyone who wishes to remain anonymous and earn up to a $1,500 cash reward may contact Secret Witness at 775-322-4900.
