A Hispanic man, approximately in his 20s, spent over an hour inside Nambe Drugs on Old Santa Fe Trail.
The suspect walked in and out of the business before locking the front door and brandishing a semi-automatic handgun out of a black backpack.
He then held the gun to a worker’s head, ordering her to stay on the floor before demanding Oxycodone, various other drugs and cash from other employees and the register.
The suspect is about 5-feet-8 inches tall, 165 pounds and was wearing blue Nike compression sleeves, jeans, a green t-shirt and a black “Mossy Oak” hat.
He was seen fleeing the scene in a silver Chrysler 300 being driven by an unknown individual.
