LAKE CITY, Fla. (WCJB) - Lake City Police are asking for help identifying a man who robbed a pharmacy at gunpoint Wednesday afternoon.

Officers say just after 1 p.m., a man wearing a face mask and gloves entered Baya Pharmacy on West on U.S Highway 90. Armed with a handgun, he gathered all the employees together and forced one to open a locked cabinet.

He stole an unknown amount of medication before leaving in a white Ford F-250.

Deputies say the vehicle used by the man who committed the robbery could be related to the vehicle used in a pair of North Florida pharmacy robberies that happened in Fort White in August.
