A man jumped over the counter at the CVS pharmacy, pushed aside a pharmacist and stole liquid codeine before fleeing with an accomplice Wednesday.

The incident occured around 11:10 a.m.

According to Saline Police Department Sgt. Jay Basso, two black males, believed to be in their 20s, parked a green sedan near Stony Lake Brewing. They walked to the CVS, where one of the men jumped the counter, pushed his way past the pharmacist and stole promethazine.

"We're working with multiple jurisdictions to investigate. There's been a recent crime spree with a similar m.o. and the same narcotic targeted," Basso said.

The pharmacist was not injured in the robbery.
