CLARKSVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Clarksville Police are asking the public for help identifying an armed robber who stole narcotics at gunpoint from a local pharmacy on Monday afternoon. 

Officials say the suspect pulled up to Harris Pharmacy of Ft. Campbell Boulevard in a truck just after 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday afternoon. 

He entered the business with a gun or rifle, demanded drugs and left with an undisclosed amount of prescription narcotics. 

Witnesses described the man as a white male in his 40s around 5 feet 6 inches tall with a stocky build, patchy "salt and pepper" facial hair. He was wearing a hoody.

Police say he left the scene in a red or maroon 90s GMC pickup truck with out-of-state tags. Witnesses say there was possibly a toolbox or some other item in the bed of the pickup. 

No one was injured in the incident.
