Cops are looking for the gunman suspected in at least four drugstore robberies in Brooklyn over the last month and a half.

In each incident, police say the suspect enters the store and demands pain medication from the front desk clerk while brandishing a firearm. He then flees with an undetermined amount of medication.

No one has been hurt in any of the incidents.

Police say the first robbery occurred at Park Pharmacy on Quentin Road March 3 in the late afternoon. The second happened St. Patrick's Day at about 11 a.m. at the J Drug/Kings High Way Chemist in the 63rd precinct. The robber struck that drugstore again on April Fool's Day and hit his original target -- Park Pharmacy -- once again on April 11.

The suspect is described as a white man about 6'1" and weighing 220 pounds. He was last seen wearing a black Northface jacket.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS (8477). Individuals can also submit their tips by logging onto Crimestoppers website and at nypdcrimestoppers.com or by texting tips to CRIMES (274637), then enter TIP577.
