A man wearing a disguise robbed a pharmacy Thursday evening in Maple Ridge.

The hold-up took place around 5 p.m. at a store in the 22900 block of Lougheed Highway.

A clerk noticed the man's disguise and went into a back office while he began to robbed the store.

Ridge Meadows RCMP allege the man jumped over the counter then helped himself to prescription drugs and cash.

Police have released a surveillance photograph of the man and are asking the public to help identify him.

He is described as a white man, around 25 years old, six feet tall and weighing between 170 and 180 pounds, with a slim to medium build.

He was wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt with the hood pulled over his head and a black baseball hat. He also wore a white bandana to cover a part of his face, black pants and white running shoes.
