TULSA, Oklahoma -- Tulsa Police are looking for a man who apologized to store employees while robbing a pharmacy Monday evening in the 5000 block of South Sheridan.

Employees at the Drug Warehouse say a man walked into the store at about 7:24 p.m. and walked directly to the pharmacy counter.   They say the man appeared to have no bottom teeth and implied he had a handgun under his hoodie.

After getting a bottle containing oxycotin pills, the man repeatedly stated he was sorry and walked casually out of the store.

Employees say he's a white man, 30 to 40 years old with a thin build, wearing a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt and shorts.

Tulsa Police say they don't know if he ran away or got into a vehicle and drove off.

No one in the Drug Warehouse was injured.

Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.
