NAPLES, Fla.-- Investigators are looking for a man police say broke into a Walgreens and took prescription medicine.

They say it happened Saturday at the store in Naples on Pine Ridge Road.

Witnesses say a man walked into the store and demanded prescription pills. The employee gave the suspect medication, but it's unclear what kind or how much.

People who regularly shop there say they are glad no one was hurt.

Shopper Mayra Alvarez said, "In that situation when they go in, they can go hurt anyone. I mean, they were lucky that no one got hurt." 

Surveillance photos of the suspect show he was wearing a green hoodie with tan pants and a brown backpack. 

He's described as a tall, bald man and about 6 feet 6 inches tall. He did not show a weapon of any kind.
