After almost a year, state police are still looking for the man who robbed the Red Lion Pharmacy in late February 2016.

A man walked into the pharmacy at 10 W. Broadway Ave., pulled out a knife and demanded prescription drugs, according to a news release from state police.

The employees handed over an undisclosed amount of drugs to the robber, who then left, fleeing south from the pharmacy, the release said.
