A man wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat went to two pharmacies in Loudoun County, Virginia, threatened the pharmacists and demanded prescription opioids, police said.
The search for the man is ongoing.
At one location, he got nothing; at the other, he got prescriptions, the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office said.
The man entered a Rite Aid on the 46000 block of Cedar Lake Plaza in Sterling about 11 a.m. Monday. He handed the pharmacist a note that implied he had a gun and demanded prescription medication, police said.
Then, he left without getting anything, police said.
About an hour later, a man appearing to wear the same clothes and hat entered a CVS on the 400 block of Enterprise Street, about three miles away from the Rite Aid, police said.
Again, the man handed the pharmacist a note implying he had a gun and demanding narcotics, police said.
