Posted: Updated:

BENNINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Police in Bennington, Vt., are looking for a suspect following an armed robbery at a CVS pharmacy.

Bennington Police Chief Paul Doucette said officers responded to a 911 call around 9 p.m. Tuesday. The caller said someone had entered the store, jumped over the pharmacy counter and demanded Percocet while showing a handgun. The male suspect left with some medication.

Police arrived within minutes and locked down the store. A police dog helped track the suspect for a while, but the trail was lost at a nearby gas station. Police tell the Bennington Banner they believe a getaway car was waiting at the gas station.

Surveillance video shows a man wearing a hooded sweatshirt with a black face mask and gloves. He is holding a black and silver handgun.
