KATY, Texas – A man accused of robbing a CVS pharmacy in Katy is being sought by the Harris County Constable's Office, Precinct 5.

The robbery happened just after 7:30 p.m. March 6 at the CVS at 3080 S. Fry Road.

Authorities said the man walked in through the front door and went toward the pharmacy department. He was scratching his right arm with his left hand while walking in.

When the man approached the pharmacy drop-off window, authorities said, he asked the pharmacy technician for a bottle of Norco 10/325, which contains the opioid hydrocodone.

The pharmacy technician asked if he had a prescription and, authorities said, the man responded by saying, "I don't need one."

The man then pulled up the right corner of his shirt, displaying a gun in his waistband, authorities said. The man took the bottle he was handed and left the store through the front door.

The man was described by the Constable's Office as white, 30 to 40 years old, 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet 3 inches tall, weighing 220 to 240 pounds, with red facial hair. Authorities said he was wearing a camo baseball hat, a black Under Armour long-sleeved shirt, khaki shorts, white and blue tennis shoes and white latex gloves.
