The Dallas Police Department is renewing its request to the public to help find a "bold and potentially dangerous" man suspected of twice robbing the same pharmacy.

The most recent incident occurred on July 27 at 8:24 a.m., when a man wearing a light green T-shirt and light colored shorts walked into the Walgreens at 8120 S. Cockrell Hill and handed a note to the pharmacist demanding controlled substances.

Dallas police Sr. Cpl. Sherri Jeffrey said the man received his drugs and walked out the front door. He's also suspected of robbing the same location about two weeks earlier on July 12. Police have not released the kind or the amount of pharmaceuticals the man stole. It's not clear whether the stolen narcotics are to sell or are for personal use. 

The suspect is a white man in his early thirties. He had a beard during the most recent robbery. Purdue Pharma L.P. is offering $5,000 to information leading to his arrest and indictment. 

Anyone who wishes to provide a tip is asked to call 214-373-8477.
