Cops Offering $2,000 Reward for Information on Peoria Pill Bandit

The Peoria Police Department and Silent Witness are offering a $2,000 reward for information about a man who robbed prescription drugs from a Peoria CVS last week.

The man, according to police, went into the drugstore at 8332 West Thunderbird Road, flashed a large kitchen knife to employees, and asked for prescription drugs.

Not to worry, though. This genius made nearly no effort to conceal his identity. No mask or anything -- this guy didn't even wear a hat, and security cameras in the store managed to get a photo of the pill bandit, clear enough to use for his Christmas card (above).

The suspect is described as 5 feet, 7 inches to 5 feet, 10 inches tall, weighing between 170 and 180 pounds, with brown hair. Police say he is estimated to be in his mid- to late-30s. 

Anyone with any information is asked to call Silent Witness at 480-Witness (480-948-6377).
