Wichita police are investigating the theft of prescription narcotics Saturday evening from a Walgreens on South Seneca.

Sgt. Scott Brunow said a 27-year-old employee reported that a man handed her a note about 7 p.m. Saturday demanding the drugs from the pharmacy at 3150 S. Seneca. He flashed a handgun that was situated in his waistband, Brunow said.

The employee gave the man the drugs, and he left on foot.

The employee described him as white, 6 feet to 6 feet 2 inches tall and clean-shaven and wearing black-framed glasses, blue windbreaker pants, a black scarf, a red beanie with white snowflakes, black shoes and a purple and black North Face coat.

Brunow said it’s possible the man got into a vehicle on 30th Street.
