Police are searching for a suspect in connection with an attempted pharmacy robbery early in the New Year.
The incident occurred on Jan. 3 when at approximately 3:20 p.m., a man approached the pharmacist at a Shoppers Drug Mart on Springbank Drive and demanded medication.

There were no injuries reported as a result of the incident.
