Brighton pharmacy held up at gunpoint by tall blond guy

Sutherland Pharmacy, 1690 Commonwealth Ave., was held up around 1:15 p.m. by a tall blond man in a mask and a shotgun, who made off with drugs. He was described as lanky, with gray eyes and a full beard and wearing a blue jacket or hoodie and dark gloves.

The pharmacy was held up by a tall white guy seeking drugs almost a year ago, as well.
