April 7, 2015 (Santee) -- The Sheriff's Department wants your help in identifying and locating a woman who robbed a pharmacy at gunpoint in Santee.

The woman entered a CVS store in the 9700 block of Mission Gorge Road around 4:30 a.m. Witnesses say the suspect pulled out a pistol and demanded percocet, a drug, and threatened to shoot the clerk if the demands were not met. Once the woman was given the percocet, she walked out of the store. No one was hurt.

The suspect is described as a woman in her 20's or 30's, possibly of Middle Eastern or Hispanic descent, with dark hair. She stands between 5'4" and 5'7" tall and weights between 140 and 160 pounds. The suspect was wearing a black sweatshirt with the word "Pink" written on it, black pants and black "Ugg" style boots.

The suspect used a semi-automatic pistol with a silver slide and black receiver.

If you recognize the woman in these photos or know her whereabouts, contact Sheriff's Detective Chris Katra at (619) 956-4057. You can also call the Crime Stoppers anonymous tip line at (888) 580-8477. A reward of up to $1,000 is being offered for information that leads to an arrest.

Santee Robbery

She will be found and jailed. It makes me think of the meth problem in El Cajon and the nearby areas. She needs help and therapy unless she's just too dumb to repair her life.
