Wanda English Burnett

Police are still searching for the would-be robber at G.A. Triplett and Son Pharmacy in Osgood last week. They need your help and a $1,000 reward is being offered for anyone giving information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the suspect.

Pictures from a video surveillance camera have been released. While they are not real clear, police are hoping someone will notice something from the build of the man who is thought to be in his mid 30’s, and call them.

The suspect could have fresh cuts to his hands, wrists, and/or lower arms due to running his hands through a window during a robbery attempt at the pharmacy on May 9.
The suspect is described as a white male with a husky build, with a goatee and was last seen wearing a light colored baggy T-shirt, blue jeans, a ball cap and carrying a cane.

He attempted to rob the pharmacy last week where he struggled with Robert Buxton, the pharmacist. The suspect drew a handgun, which had been concealed on his person and broke the window to the pharmacy area.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Indiana State Police in Versailles at 812-689-5000 or 800-566-6704 (in Indiana only). Callers can remain anonymous.
