Man Who Robbed Ellicott City Pharmacy Tries Again

ELLICOTT CITY, Md. — Howard County police are looking for a man who tried a second robbery at a pharmacy.

Police say the man had robbed the Ellicott City Pharmacy in January. Officers say he displayed a handgun in his waistband, forced employees into the back and stole narcotics.

Police say the same man returned to the pharmacy on March 24. Officers say he approached the counter and demanded drugs. But the employee said she had activated the store’s alarm.

The suspect fled empty-handed.
