AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - An Augusta pharmacy has been robbed of prescription medication for the second time in a week and the third time this year.

Police say the CVS on Capitol Street was robbed at about 3 p.m. Wednesday.

There have been nine drug store robberies in the city this year. Police say statewide, pharmacy robberies are more than double last year's total, with 53 robberies.

No one was hurt in Wednesday's robbery and police were still on the hunt for the suspect.

He was described as a slender man, about 5 feet, 6 inches tall, wearing khaki pants, white sneakers, black gloves, a dark hooded sweat shirt with a hood and a dark ski mask. No weapon was used.
