TULSA, OK -- Tulsa Police are looking for a man caught on surveillance video stealing thousands of dollars worth of prescription drugs.

The robbery happened late Monday night at the Med-X at 61st and Yale.

Tulsa Police got the call shortly after 9 p.m. Employees told officers a Hispanic male entered the store wearing a safari hat, tan clothing and a light-colored cloth over his face.

He ordered three employees at the front of the store to go with him to the pharmacy. Once there, police say he forced them and the three employees in the pharmacy to lie on the ground.

In the surveillance video, the man can be seen waving his gun at an employee while that employee fills a plastic bag with Oxycotin and Loratab pills.

After getting the drugs, the man ran out the front door and drove away in what employees say was a black Chevy Blazer with chrome rims.

Police believe this may be the same man who robbed a CVS pharmacy early Monday morning near 71st and Lewis.

If you recognize the man or know anything that will help in his capture, call Crime Stoppers at 596-COPS.
