A man with a mask, hat and sunglasses robbed the CVS at 44th Avenue South in North Myrtle Beach Thursday night, according to a police report. 

The man walked up to the pharmacy counter shortly before 7 p.m. and told an employee that he needed to pick up a prescription for "Smith," the report said.

When the employee asked for more information to pull the prescription, the man replied, "It's not a prescription do you see what's in my hands," the report said. 

The report's narrative said the man was holding a knife with a 4-inch blade in hand and note in the other hand that said "Put oxy in a bag." 

Workers gave the man 111 5-miligram pills and he walked out of the store, the report said.

Police are investigating. No photo of the suspect is immediately available.

Mayor Hatley, “we are not Myrtle Beach.” If the goal is to be different, there sure are a shocking number of similarities.
