PHOENIX — Peoria police are searching for a man suspected of attempting to rob a pharmacy on Monday.
Just before 4 p.m. the suspect presented a note to an employee at the Fry’s grocery store pharmacy near 91st Avenue and Olive Street, demanding specific narcotic pills which the employee refused to provide. After being refused the suspect left the store.
