Bear – Delaware State Police is currently investigating the robbery of a Bear area pharmacy which occurred yesterday afternoon, according to Public Information Officer Master Corporal Jeffrey Hale.

Hale said the investigation thus far has determined that the incident occurred at approximately 4:30 p.m. on Monday, July 31, 2017, as a male suspect entered the Walgreens located at 128 Fox Hunt Drive. The suspect approached the pharmacy counter and presented an employee with a demand note for prescription medication, said Hale.
