TIFTON, GA (WALB) - Tifton police are now offering a reward to anyone with information about an armed robbery that leads to an arrest and conviction. A man with a shotgun tried to rob a pharmacy of narcotics.

The masked man demanded the powerful painkiller OxyContin from the pharmacist at Ruby's Pharmacy Tuesday. Even though he was holding a sawed-off shotgun, the pharmacist refused to give him the drug.

He left empty-handed and luckily no one was hurt. Officers believe this man may have also robbed a Moultire pharmacy in June. The robber is about six-feet-tall, had a black canvas bag over his head, and was wearing a tan jacket.

If you have any information about this case, call Tifton Police at 229-382-3132.
