A Jefferson Avenue drugstore was robbed of about $1,500 about 5:30 p.m. Saturday, Buffalo police said.

The bandit handed a note demanding money to a clerk at Dexter Leader Drugs, 1400 block of Jefferson, then fled west on Woodlawn Avenue.

The robber was described only as a white male, 6-foot-4, and initially wearing a red hoodie. Police learned the robber left the store and walked east on East Ferry Street, returning 10 to 15 minutes later wearing a black hoodie. The bandit kept his hands in his pockets, as if he was concealing a weapon, police added.
