Police Chief Odis Rogers said the man stole opioids.

"(I'm) impressed by the response of Drug Mart employees for their ability to remain safe and being great witnesses in the investigation. Despite being shaken up, they were able to provide many details about the suspect, his behavior and the event," Rogers said in a news release.
