A male suspect carrying an orange traffic cone and a firearm allegedly robbed a Rite Aid pharmacy before carjacking a priest in the parking lot to escape.

The man arrived at the pharmacy in Haddonfield, New Jersey, around noon on June 16, 2015, and jumped over the pharmacy counter, CBS Philly reported. He showed the staff his firearm while demanding Adderall and oxycodone.

In addition to the firearm and traffic cone, the man was also wearing a long yellow rain jacket, yellow reflective vest, black mask, and white hardhat, according to CBS Philly.

He left the Rite Aid with an unknown amount of Adderall and ran into the parking lot, where he found a priest in a car. The robber allegedly stole the car and drove it about a block, but then left the vehicle and ran.

Witnesses had seen the suspect measuring trees near the Rite Aid earlier, CBS Philly reported.

Authorities say the man is also a suspect in another Rite Aid robbery in Gloucester County.

No one was injured in the incident, according to CBS Philly.
