GRAY — Cumberland County Sheriff’s deputies are looking for the man who robbed a Rite Aid Pharmacy on West Gray Road in Gray on Sunday and they’re exploring whether it’s related to a separate incident in Lewiston.

Police are trying to determine whether there is any connection to an incident at the Rite Aid Pharmacy on Lisbon Street in Lewiston where a man passed the pharmacist what appeared to be a fake prescription at noon. The suspect’s physical description was similar though the clothing was different. He did not get any drugs.

At 1 p.m., a man passed the Gray pharmacist a note threatening that he had a gun, and left the store with an undisclosed amount of prescription medication, the sheriff’s office said.

The man is described as 5-foot-9, in his 20s, wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, a tan coat, sunglasses and tan or green pants, the sheriff’s office said.
