Police seek man who robbed Chapin pharmacy with semi-automatic handgun

CHAPIN, SC (WIS) - The Chapin Police Department is asking for help to find a man who robbed the Chapin Rite Aid almost two weeks ago.

The armed robbery happened on Saturday, January 14 around 10:30 p.m. at the Chapin Rite Aid on Chapin Road.

Police said the man waved a dark colored semi-automatic handgun when he stole an undisclosed amount of money. Video footage from the scene captured images of the man and a vehicle that appears to be a light or silver Jeep Wrangler driving away after the robbery.

The suspect is described as a black male in his mid- 20s, with a height of 5'6" to 5'8", weighing about 160 to 180 pounds and having light skin with freckles. Witnesses said the robber was wearing a white sweat shirt with a grey colored hoodie, dark colored bandana, dark colored pants, white Air Force One sneakers and dark colored gloves.

A South Carolina Law Enforcement Division forensic artist produced a sketch of the robber. Mobile users tap here to see that sketch and several surveillance images of the robber and the vehicle he possibly drove away.
