Brentwood enjoys a low crime rate, and for the most part the crime that the city does experience is of the property-related variety. Think car break-ins, thefts from locker rooms, that sort of thing.
Occasionally, though, Brentwood does see more serious crimes, like the one that occurred at the Kroger on 210 Franklin Road on Monday night, and which is included on the latest crime report provided by the Brentwood Police Department.
Around 9 p.m. Monday, an armed man entered the Kroger pharmacy just as it was closing and demanded that the clerk open a safe containing prescription medication, according to a Brentwood Police Department press release. The man took the drugs and fled on foot.
Police are looking for a black male, approximately 5-feet-7-inches to 5-feet-10-inches tall with a medium build who was last seen wearing a dark colored jacket, jeans, a blue cap and a white surgical mask.
Brentwood police ask that anyone with information about this suspect contact the department at (615) 371-0160 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
