A young “local looking” man is the subject of a manhunt tonight by Maui Police after he robbed a Long’s Drug Store on Kiopaa Street in Kula. Monday evening at around 8:27 p.m., the suspect walked into the prescription area of that Long’s store and jumped over the counter into the pharmaceutical dispensing area.
The suspect reportedly brandished a weapon and demanded “oxys,” the abbreviated term for Oxycodone. The pharmacist did not resist. The suspect fled with an undisclosed amount of drugs, leaving on foot in an unknown direction.
Police released the following description of the suspect:
- HEIGHT: Approximately 5′ 5″
- ETHNICITY: Described as “local looking” male
- WEIGHT: Approximately 150 pounds
- LAST SEEN wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt – long-sleeved with an unknown logo on the top left chest area. He was also wearing a brown baseball cap, camouflage shorts, dark athletic shoes and a camouflage bandana around his face.
Maui Police suggest that the suspect – if known – not be directly approached. Instead, call 9-1-1 or the 24-hour non-emergency line at 808-244-6400.
