Three males, possibly in their teens, entered the CVS Pharmacy on the 1500 block of Trancas Street, jumped over the pharmacy counter and stole thousands of dollars worth of opioids on Wednesday night, according to Napa Police.

Pharmacy employees were present at the time, police said.

One of the suspects demanded an employee hand over “Norcos”, addictive acetaminophen and hydrocodone, while two other suspects helped themselves to Hydrocodone and Oxycodone pills, police said.

The suspects then hopped back over the counter, fled the store and started running toward Trancas Street. They were described as young-looking black men, possibly in their late teens, with thin builds between 160 and 170 pounds, between 5’6” and 5’11” and wearing dark hooded sweatshirts. Police said one suspect was wearing a green bandanna over his face.

The suspects have been identified as being the same individuals associated with other attempted robberies occurring in Northern California this week, police said.
