Video: EBR sheriff seeks man in attempted robbery of CVS on George O’Neal

The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office is searching for the man deputies say attempted to rob a CVS store at 15255 George O’Neal Road around 9:10 a.m. Thursday.

The man entered the store and passed a note to an employee stating he had a weapon and wanted narcotics from the pharmacy, but fled on foot without getting anything, according to a press release. A weapon wasn’t seen on him, deputies said.

The would-be robber then entered a silver mid-sized vehicle with no license plate parked on Autumnwood and fled on Jones Creek toward South Harrell’s Ferry, deputies said.

EBRSO established a perimeter and searched the area, but has not located him.
