Lincoln Police are searching for a man who robbed a CVS Saturday morning.

Officials say the suspect walked into the store at 70th and O streets around 6:45 a.m. and demanded drugs from the pharmacist. The employee told police the man said he had a bomb after lifting up his shirt and revealing a device with exposed wires strapped to his chest.

Police say the man got away with an undetermined amount of drugs and ran to the west. A K-9 track was unsuccessful. Police are still investigating and reviewing surveillance footage for more clues. 

The suspect is described as a skinny white male in his 20's wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, sunglasses and gloves.
