July 21, 2014
Havre police are looking for a woman suspected of robbing a Havre pharmacy at gunpoint Monday.
Havre Police Department Lt. Aaron Wittmer said a person brandished a handgun inside Western Drug in Havre, demanding prescription narcotics and cash. The pharmacy was closed Monday afternoon following the robbery.
Wittmer said about 3 p.m. Monday that the police did not have anyone in custody and had no suspects at the moment.
Police are looking for a woman, 5-foot tall, wearing a green hood.
The robbery led to a temporary lockdown of the Hill County Courthouse and its annex that contains the county health department.
Wittmer said a member of the public had reported that they were following a suspected vehicle, but when officers stopped that vehicle it was not the right one.
Anyone with any knowledge of the robbery is asked to call Havre Police at 265-4361. Details in Tuesday's Havre Daily News.
