A man wearing a mask and bearing a handgun jumped over the counter at a CVS Pharmacy Monday night and filled a backpack with Oxycontin pills.

Police responded to the CVS at 600 State St. about 11:30 p.m. after receiving a complaint that a light skinned man wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt made off with an unspecified amount of narcotics, police said.

The suspect fled towards St. James Avenue and was seen getting into a dark colored vehicle, possibly a Honda.

Detectives are looking into the store surveillance tapes and following leads.
