SULLIVAN COUNTY, Tenn. -

Authorities in Sullivan County hope a picture of a car will help them find the person they say robbed a pharmacy.

The sheriff's office says the man seen in surveillance video walked into Blountville Drug on Highway 126 around 4:45 p.m. last Tuesday. We're told the man handed workers a note demanding drugs and saying he had a gun. He was given drugs and then left the scene.

Officers say the man is between 6'2" and 6'4" in height, and weighs around 250 pounds.

He was last seen driving a vehicle like the one seen above.

If you have any information about this robbery, please call the Sullivan County Sheriff's Office at (423) 279-7500, extension 222.
