Posted:

PRARIE DU CHIEN (KWWL)-- Police say a man held up a Prarie Du Chien pharmacy Saturday morning, asking for the store's entire stock of oxycodone pills.

Employees of the Hartig Pharmacy on South Marquette Road say the man slipped them a note around 10:30 a.m.  Police say he told a pharmacist he had a gun, and demanded the pills.

Employees followed directions and gave the man 300 pills worth $7,500.

He's described as a slender man about 5-10 to six feet tall with reddish facial hair. He was wearing a dark, hooded sweatshirt.
