Authorities Searching for Alleged Sicklerville Pharmacy Robber

The man upon whom a Sicklerville pharmacist unloaded with a handgun Wednesday apparently committed the act in a blue dress and a wig.

He goes about 5-foot-8, maybe 5-foot-10. He's black and stocky, with a light beard. Likes Oxycontin, apparently.

Oh, and he was last seen wearing a blue dress and a wig.

Fooling almost no one—including a pharmacist at Jolin's Pharmacy in Sicklerville—this is the description of a suspect sought in connection with an attempted robbery in Winslow Township Wednesday afternoon.

Authorities are now pulling out the dragnet for this drag-lover, but it was no laughing matter Wednesday when the encounter led to gunfire in the store.

"The pharmacist stated to investigators he saw what appeared to be the butt of a gun in a fanny pack the man wore," said Jason Laughlin, spokesman for the Camden County Prosecutor's Office in a press release issued Thursday.

"The pharmacist retreated to the business office of the pharmacy and grabbed a handgun there," Laughlin's email read. "He then fired several shots at the suspect, who fled on a mountain bike. It does not appear the fleeing man was struck by gunfire."

Police are looking for anyone with information about the case to contact Camden County Prosecutor’s Office Investigator Bob Ferris at 856-580-5997 or Winslow Police Detective Tristan Shorter at 609-561-3300. Information may also be emailed to ccpotips@ccprosecutor.org.
