JANESVILLE, Wis. -

The Janesville Police Department is looking for a person involved in an early morning robbery Tuesday, according to a release.

Around 5:30 a.m. the robber entered the Walgreens at 1717 Milton Ave. and demanded prescription medication from the pharmacy, officials said. The robber displayed what appeared to be the butt end of a long gun that he had tucked in his pants.

The robber got away with an undetermined amount of medication and was last seen running in west of the Walgreens, according to the release.

The robber is described as 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall, with a stocky build. The robber’s face was covered by a camouflage bandanna. He was wearing a tan jacket, green hooded sweatshirt, blue pants, and dark shoes, and was carrying a dark colored duffel bag.

No one was injured during the robbery, officials said.
