NEWPORT-A white male who hid his face tried to rob the Family Discount Drugs on West Broadway on Thursday, Sept. 19, the Newport Police Department reported.

The man allegedly told a pharmacist around 11:25 a.m., "Give me a box of Oxycontin," Capt. Scott Lamb reported.

The pharmacist allegedly replied the store did not have a box of Oxycontin.

The would-be robber then allegedly said, "I am not serious", and ran out of the pharmacy, according to the report.
