State Police are asking for help finding a man who they say walked into a Westmoreland County Walmart last week and held up the pharmacy with a BB gun he stole from the store.
State police have a warrant for the arrest of Adam Trax, 30, on armed robbery and related charges. His last known address was in Ligonier.
Trooper Stephen Limani of the Greensburg barracks said authorities believe Trax may be in the Pittsburgh area.
According to state police, who used store surveillance cameras to piece together what happened, Trax went into the Unity Walmart about 8 p.m. on May 21 and walked around for a half-hour to 45 minutes.
He put on a flannel shirt and ball cap, walked to the back of the store near the sporting goods, and took a BB gun out of the package and stuck it in his belt, Trooper Limani said.
Trax then went to the pharmacy counter, showed the gun, and demanded Oxycodone and pain-relief patches, Trooper Limani said. Police won't say how much he stole before leaving the store in a vehicle.
State police have received dozens of calls since the robbery. They found the vehicle Trax used, which he apparently borrowed from someone who didn't know his plans, Trooper Limani said.
Court records show Trax has had several scrapes with the law, including a 2003 burglary conviction.
State police ask anyone with information to call state police at 724-832-3288.
