Wanted: chipmunk for robbery.

Halloween may be more than a month away, but one man in Ville Platte, Louisiana entered a pharmacy in full costume.

Unfortunately, the man was up to some tricks rather than treats when he robbed the pharmacy at gunpoint dressed head-to-toe in a chipmunk costume.

On Saturday afternoon, the unidentified chipmunk made off with an undisclosed amount of medications.

KATC reports that the suspect escorted an employee through the store at gunpoint and ordered her to fill a bag with narcotic medication. The suspect then fled towards a nearby apartment complex.

The sheriff said the only positive from the robbery is that the suspect gave the victim her sim card when she said she had pictures of her grandkids on her phone. He ran away with her phone.

The investigation is still ongoing with the Evangeline Parish Sheriff’s Office seeking any information on the robbers whereabouts.

You can call 337-363-2161 or provide information through the agency’s website at All information will always remain anonymous.
