Two wanted for armed robbery at south Forsyth pharmacy

SOUTH FORSYTH -- Two suspects remain at large after a woman reportedly robbed a pharmacy at gunpoint in south Forsyth on Friday morning.

Around 10:45 a.m., a white woman armed with a black handgun reportedly entered Forsyth Pharmacy and Specialty Center, which is located at 3592 Old Atlanta Road, and demanded various medications from the store’s pharmacist, said Forsyth County Sheriff’s Deputy Doug Rainwater, a spokesman for the agency.

After being handed an unknown amount of medicine by the pharmacist, the woman walked out of the store, fleeing the pharmacy on foot.

She is described as 5-foot-2 and 180 pounds, Rainwater said.

“Prior to the robbery, a white male suspect was observed talking to the female on the sidewalk outside, but she is the only one who entered the pharmacy,” Rainwater said. “The male stayed on the sidewalk in front [of the pharmacy], and he was seen wearing a dark in color hoodie with khaki pants.”

Rainwater said the community is not thought to be in danger.

Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff's office at (770) 781-2200 during business hours.

After hours, the sheriff’s office can be reached at (770) 781-3087.
