PARMA, OH (WOIO) - Parma's serial pharmacy robber has struck again.

Saturday evening, a male believed to be connected to two other drug store pharmacy robberies  in January hit the Walgreen's Pharmacy located at 5400 Pearl Road.

The suspect demanded Opana and Oxycontin, got the drugs and fled the scene. "In all three of these instances he's been able to make it out of the store with a certain quantity of medication" says Parma Police Detective Marty Compton.

Parma Police described the male from Saturday's incident as a white male, 5'6"-5'8" tall, 175 lbs wearing a red hoodie and a black/green ski mask.

A man fitting the same physical description robbed the Walgreens on Rockside Road on January 20th and a Rite Aid located at State and Snow Road on January 4th.

Anyone with information relative to the identity of this male is requested to call the Parma Police Crime Tip-Line at (440) 887-7340.  Callers may remain anonymous.
