The incident was reported at Rite Aid on Washington Street.
Attleboro police are searching for a man who they said stole narcotics Friday afternoon at Rite Aid (1099 Washington St.) after he showed employees a gun and jumped over the counter to grab them.
Detective Sgt. Arthur Brillon told Attleboro Patch the incident happened at approximately 2:30 p.m. He described the suspect as a white male in his late 40s or early 50s, about 6 feet tall with facial hair and wearing a baseball cap that said "U.S. Border Patrol."
