We received word that Kings Bay Chemist Pharmacy at 3610 Nostrand Avenue was robbed at gunpoint just minutes ago. An employee at a neighboring business writes:
A customer just came in all shaken up saying she was in the pharmacy on nostrand and ave w and it was held up by a guy at gunpoint. he forced people to back and wanted oxycontin.
This sounds an awful lot like the “drugstore cowboy” we told you about earlier this month. That robber also burst into drugstores with a gun, ordered people to the rear, and demanded the highly-potent painkillers. He also hit Health Star Pharmacy, at 1422 Avenue U, and J Drugs on Avenue J, among others.
