Police are investigating an alleged armed robbery at a pharmacy in Banora Point on Sunday.
At about 10.40am, they say, a man threatened staff with what appeared to be a sawn-off shotgun and demanded they open the safe and cash register.
Staff handed over a quantity of prescription medications, which the man allegedly placed in a black carry bag before leaving the premises.
The man was seen to get into a small silver Daewoo Lanos sedan and drive off in a southerly direction on Darlington Drive.
There was one customer in the store at the time but no-one was injured during the incident.
The alleged offender is described as being male, 170 to 175cm tall wearing a high-visibility hooded jacket, black tracksuit pants, white joggers and a mask over his face.
Detectives from Tweed-Byron Local Area Command are investigating and are appealing to anyone who has information or may have witnessed the incident to come forward.
Anyone with information about this incident should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: https://www1.police.nsw.gov.au/.
