GEISMAR, LA (WAFB) -

Sheriff's deputies are looking for a man who stole prescription drugs from a pharmaceutical trailer outside a Geismar Walgreens.

Investigators say the thief struck while the driver was inside the pharmacy making a delivery.

A witness says the suspect's truck was a four-door GMC Sierra short bed truck with fender flares, factory rims and tinted windows.  The truck has a Louisiana 200th year anniversary license plate with a pelican on the left side of the plate.

A store surveillance camera caught the suspect's truck as he fled.

The suspect was last seen driving down Highway 73, then turning onto Cornerview Road, heading toward Gonzales.

If you have any information on this case, call Crime Stoppers at 344-STOP.
