Fort Wayne Police are searching for a man who reportedly robbed a pharmacy of Vicodin pills late Wednesday afternoon.

Police were called at 3:35 p.m. to Community Care Pharmacy, 2700 Lafayette St., after a caller reported that a man said he had a gun and demanded narcotics, according to scanner traffic. The man did not display a weapon and left with 200-300 Vicodin pills, according to police.
