SOUTH OGDEN, Utah – Police are searching for three suspects who allegedly assaulted a pharmacist and stole prescription medication and cash from a pharmacy.
The incident occurred at around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday at a Walgreen Store located at 3600 S. Riverdale Road in South Ogden.
According to a press release from the South Ogden Police Department, one suspect acted as a lookout while the two other suspects jumped over the counter and assaulted the pharmacist. The suspects forced open a locked cabinet to take prescription pills, and they also allegedly forced the clerk to open the register, which allowed them to steal a small amount of cash.
The suspects are pictured above and described as follows in the press release:
“A skinny white male, in his early 20’s, approximately 5’10”, with sideburns. Wearing a grey jacket, blue jeans, and a light colored ball cap with a Hurley symbol on it.
A black male, in his early to mid 20’s, muscular, 6’ tall wearing light colored camouflage pants, a dark hoodie, unshaven, with short hair.

The clerk did not require medical attention. Officials stated in the release that the suspects were “violent, brazen, and methodical.”
