The most recent robbery happened Thursday at the Das Pharmacy in the 100 block of Van Houten Avenue shortly before 5:45 p.m. 

Officers were dispatched to the business to investigate reports of a robbery in progress. When cops arrived, they learned that an armed suspect had entered the establishment and took an undetermined amount of cash and items. 

The suspect fled the scene and is at large.
