One-Eyed, Thieving Swashbuckler Wanted In Colorado

Avast, ye mateys, listen up! Police in Colorado are trying to identify a one-eyed scallywag who robbed a Colorado Springs pharmacy over the weekend.

According to police, the incident occurred at about 3:50 a.m. Sunday when a disguised swashbuckler went into the Walgreens pharmacy in the 900 block of North Circle Drive. Armed with a modern-day musketoon, the wannabe pirate was not in search of jewels or doubloons but instead demanded prescription medications.

The pharmacist filled a bag with an undisclosed amount of prescription loot, and just as quickly as he had sailed in on foot, the villainous buccaneer dashed out the nearest exit. Booty in hand, he fled in an unknown direction, authorities said.

Employees of the pharmacy quickly battened down the hatches and notified police.

The malevolent bearded bandit's daring heist was captured by the drugstore's surveillance cameras. He is described as a white male in his 20s, approximately 5' 9" tall, and approximately 150 pounds, with brown eyes.

"He wore a disguise to alter his appearance," Colorado Springs police said in a press release. "The suspect held a weapon in his right hand and provided a bag for the drugs."

The general public should not attempt to apprehend the unknown rascal, since to do so could risk an unwanted tour of Davy Jones' locker. Instead, anyone with information about the case should call Detective Eric Anderson at 719-444-7869 or Crime-stoppers at 719-634-7867.
