COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO) -- Columbia Police is asking for help as they search for an armed robbery suspect.

Investigators say a man robbed a Walgreens store at 7412 Broad River Road a little after 9 a.m. Saturday morning.

Police say the suspect alleged came to the pharmacy counter and demanded controlled medications located behind the counter, and a witness adds that the man lifted his sweatshirt to show what could have been a weapon.

No one was injured during the incident.

The suspect is possibly in a older model (probably a mid-2000) dark blue, 4-door full size pickup which might have damage on the right side. The truck may have been damaged while the suspect was trying to get away.
