BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) – A man in Birmingham tried to get prescription drugs in quite the unusual way.

He stated that if he didn’t get what he wanted, the bomb would go off.

The incident happened at a Rite Aid Pharmacy on Roebuck Parkway on Thursday.

The man did not get away with any drugs, and no explosives ever went off.

Police are now looking for the man, though.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (205) 254-7777.
