SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Federal authorities are offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for a robbery of a Sioux Falls pharmacy.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives offered the reward Thursday. The federal agency and police in Sioux Falls are investigating the July 9 incident at a Walgreen’s, where authorities say a man flashed a firearm and passed a note to an employee demanding opioids and syringes.

This isn’t the first time this year that a drug store in Sioux Falls has been robbed.

Earlier this year, a man was arrested for allegedly stealing $5,000 worth of prescription pills from a retail store. Police think he waited inside the store until it closed before breaking into the pharmacy and making off with painkillers.
