A pharmacy in North Muskegon, Michigan, has been robbed twice of the same prescription medication, according to MLive Muskegon Chronicle.

In both instances, which took place January 19, 2015, and October 14, 2014, the robber was wearing a camouflaged coat with a hood. Police have not determined whether the man behind the October incident also committed the much more recent robbery.

Around 6:45 p.m. on January 19, 2015, a man in his early 20s arrived at Keefe’s HomeTown Pharmacy with a handgun and told a pharmacy employee to put a prescription drug in his backpack, police told MLive Muskegon Chronicle.

A K-9 unit could not track the suspect further than a block away from the store. Police believe he jumped into a vehicle to flee the crime scene.

During the October incident, MLive Muskegon Chronicle reported that the camouflaged suspect used a hammer to break a glass door to get into the pharmacy to steal a bottle of prescription medication, which has not yet been identified.
