POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) -- Authorities are looking for suspects after three pharmacies in Pocatello and Chubbuck were robbed this past week.

The Idaho State Journal reports that police did not release any information on the robberies until after being contacted by the newspaper.

Pocatello police report that a woman armed with a handgun entered the pharmacy of the Pocatello Walgreens and used force to acquire painkilling medication. The robbery occurred at about 2:18 a.m. last Sunday.

The pharmacy at the Walgreens in Chubbuck was robbed about 9 p.m. Thursday by a male believed to be armed.

In the third incident, Pocatello police say someone disabled the alarm system at the Ed Snell's Pharmacy Shop at about 4 a.m. Tuesday and took painkillers.
