The man who robbed the Northwest Hospital pharmacy last week made out like, um, a bandit, scoring nearly $15,000 worth of Oxycontin, according to a police report.

Police were called to the hospital at about noon on April 7th after a man—described as a white male, in his 20's, and approximately 5' 9" tall with a medium build, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with the hood up, black baseball cap, and a blue bandanna over face, light baggy blue jeans and white tennis shoes—walked into the hospital's pharmacy, pointed a silver handgun at an employee and demanded Oxycontin. We first reported on the robbery here.

The pharmacy worker handed over 29 bottles of Oxycontin, "containing 2,420 pills worth $14,563.49," the report says.

The suspect then fled from the hospital and got into a silver or gray 2006 Volkswagen Jetta and drove off eastbound on 115th St.

Robbery detectives are investigating.
