The FBI and Milwaukee Police are seeking the public's help in identifying several men captured on surveillance video robbing Milwaukee-area Walgreens stores earlier this year. 

The three armed robberies happened within a three-day period in March and the suspects are believed to be in Indianapolis.

On March 8 around 9:25 p.m., two men with handguns robbed the Walgreens location at 4730 South 27th Street. Two of the men jumped the pharmacy counter, handed the pharmacist a note and stole several bottles of narcotics. A third man acted as a lookout. 

On March 10 at around 1:10 a.m., a man armed with a black semi-automatic handgun robbed the Walgreens located at 3701 South Howell Avenue.

The suspect jumped over the pharmacy and ordered the pharmacist to open the safe containing Percocet and Tussionex. Authorities say the suspect also stole various bottles of narcotics that were on the counter.

At 11:35 p.m. the same day, two men robbed the Walgreens at N83 W15701 Appleton Avenue in Menomonee Falls. One of the armed robbers jumped over the pharmacy counter and pointed a handgun at the pharmacist. The second robber then jumped over the pharmacy counter and ordered the pharmacist to open the safe. The robbers took various bottles of narcotics from the safe and fled the store.

Anyone with information is asked to call FBI Indianapolis at 317-595-4000.
