POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) - Authorities are looking for suspects after three pharmacies in Pocatello and Chubbuck were robbed this past week.

The Idaho State Journal reports (http://bit.ly/QPF2U7) that police did not release any information on the robberies until after being contacted by the newspaper.

Pocatello police report that a woman armed with a handgun entered the pharmacy of the Pocatello Walgreens and used force to acquire painkilling medication. The robbery occurred at about 2:18 a.m. last Sunday.

The pharmacy at the Walgreens in Chubbuck was robbed about 9 p.m. Thursday by a male believed to be armed.

In the third incident, Pocatello police say someone disabled the alarm system at the Ed Snell’s Pharmacy Shop at about 4 a.m. Tuesday and took painkillers.
