Adderall, Concerta, morphine, and Ritalin were some of the prescription medications tossed into a robber’s Hello Kitty bag at a pharmacy in Shelby, Ohio.

A man entered Discount Drug Mart around 11:20 a.m. on February 21, 2015, and revealed a black semiautomatic handgun, according to Mansfield News Journal. He left with medications valued at nearly $90,000 on the street.

Surveillance video shows a man jumping over the pharmacy counter and disappearing into the back of the pharmacy. A pharmacy technician later told police that she opened a cabinet filled with narcotics and placed them into his Hello Kitty bag. The video then shows him jumping back over the counter, and police said he might have left in a white SUV parked near the store, Mansfield News Journal reported.

The suspect was described as a white, 5-foot-8-inch man in his late 20s or early 30s, with brown hair and red facial hair.

Later, police said they received a report of a suspicious man with a Hello Kitty bag inside Community Markets, but nothing was stolen while he was there.

Police said they have not yet received any tips from the public about the man’s identity.
