Donohoo Pharmacy robbed at gunpoint
06-Feb-2008: An unidentified robber held up Donohoo Pharmacy at gunpoint Monday evening, demanding drugs and money before he fled on foot. According to the Georgetown Police Department, Donohoo Pharmacy workers did not give the suspect any medication, but he did make off with an unspecified amount of cash.
No one was hurt in the robbery. Although a positive identification of the man has not yet been made, law enforcement officers are reviewing surveillance tapes of the incident and the GPD has a few leads it is pursuing.
The robbery occurred around 6:30 p.m. Feb. 4. Donohoo employees reported a male, age 18 to 25, with black, curly hair entered the pharmacy with a gun, making demands. The suspect was reportedly wearing a black mask, black gloves, a red hooded sweatshirt with a round design on the right side of the hood, a black backpack, dark jeans and white sneakers. After obtaining cash from the pharmacy's register, the subject reportedly fled north on Main Street, on foot. The Brown County Sheriff's Office was called in to assist with tracking the suspect, and a BCSO K-9 unit initially picked up his track. The track was lost, however, near the sleeping rooms on State Street.
According to Georgetown Police, a similar robbery has been reported in the New Richmond area within the last month, although it is not clear if the two instances are related.
Just before the Donohoo robbery, Georgetown Police received a report of a fight involving a baseball bat in progress at Kathryn Hanlon Park. Within minutes of responding to the reported fight, the robbery occurred. The fight turned out to be entirely unfounded, according to police, as no persons and no evidence confirming the fight was located. It has not yet been determined if the call was in any way related to the robbery, although GPD officers said the situation certainly seems somewhat suspicious.
