    In a follow-up to a story we reported yesterday, police are searching for a man who reportedly robbed a Plainfield CVS Saturday.

    According to a release from the Plainfield Police Department, an employee of the store says a man wearing a dark mask, dark clothing, and a hooded sweatshirt entered the store and pointed a gun at two clerks.

    He is described as a white male with a blond mustache, slim or medium build, and approximately 6 feet tall.

    The suspect proceeded to tell the clerks to lie down and forced the pharmacist to open the drug safe. The suspect then filled a bag with prescription drugs and ran out the front door.

    On his way out of the store, he dropped the bag of narcotics, all stolen property was recovered.

    A customer witnessed the man running away and attempted to run after him. The suspect fired two shots at the customer but he was not injured.

    The suspect ran northbound from the store. He has yet to be located.

    Police were called to the scene around 4:30 a.m. If anyone has any information on this incident or the suspect’s whereabouts, please call Detective Paul Williams at 317-839-8700.
