Hamilton police are looking for two suspects after a Concession St. pharmacy was robbed of cash and prescription drugs.

Police have released footage of the robbery to the public.

Police say that on Jan. 27, a man and a woman entered the pharmacy at the corner of Concession St. and East 31st St. at around 9:00 a.m. and demanded that the store employee hand over cash and prescription drugs. Police allege that one of the suspects was wielding a hammer.

The female suspect filled a large green plastic bag with drugs before, police say, both suspects fled to a vehicle waiting outside.

Police are asking for the public’s assistance to identify the two suspects.

Police are also searching for a suspect in a separate pharmacy robbery.

On Jan. 30, police allege a man entered a pharmacy on James St. North, and filled a large pillowcase with prescription drugs.

Police describe the suspect in the James St. North caper as a 5’7” white man with a thin build and blue eyes, wearing a dark jacket.
