The Knox County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying two suspects responsible for two separate armed robberies that occurred last month.
The first suspect robbed a West Knox County pharmacy on March 12th. According to Knox County Sheriff’s Office Detectives, the suspect entered the CVS at 11946 Kingston Pike at Smith Road in Farragut around 10:53 armed with a black handgun and demanded that the pharmacist hand over Roxicodone, Adderal, and Viagra.
He fled in a vehicle, but no description was given. The suspect is described as a white male with an average build, 45-50 years old, 230 pounds, and a height of 6”2-6”3. He had a dark brown or red mustache, which could have been a fake, and was wearing a brown camouflage Boonie Hat. See photos below:

According to the initial investigation, a white male entered the Weigel’s at 600 Ebenezer Road in West Knox County around 9:40 p.m., brandished a gun, and demanded the money from the cash register. After receiving the money, he fled the store on foot in an unknown direction.
The suspect is described as a white male, 5’10”-6’0”, thin build. He was wearing a black shirt, blue jeans, and ski mask at the time of the robbery.
