SHOREWOOD- Shorewood police are looking for an armed robbery suspect from Monday afternoon after the suspect allegedly took an unknown amount of money and narcotics from Thompson's Serv-U Pharmacy on 1421 E. Capitol Drive.

The video shows the crime as it happens.  You see the two employees behind the counter and they apparently "freeze" as they see the robber come in. 

He points the gun at them, forces a man back behind the counter.

He tells them to get down on the floor and he then he handcuffs both of them and spends a few minutes rummaging for money and drugs and then runs from the floor.

Then a woman is somehow able to get out of her handcuffs and calls for help.

A $1,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to his arrest.

Anyone with information should call the Shorewood Police Department.


The suspect is described as a black man, wearing a black jacket, gray hoodie, underneath jacket, knit cap with a scarf covering his face.
