UPDATE: Police find body while searching for Toowoomba Pharmacy robber


UPDATE: 

Police say a man who's body was found in Toowoomba while investigating the armed robbery of a pharmacy appears to have died of an overdose.

Officers went to a Newtown property last night about 9pm, where they found the man's body, along with items directly linked to the robbery on Wednesday.

Toowoomba Police could not confirm the man was responsible for the incident but say his death is not being treated as suspicious.


EARLIER: Police are hoping a computer generated image of a man wanted over a robbery at Toowoomba will help investigations.
It's alleged the man entered the Mylne Street Pharmacy and threatened staff with a knife before fleeing with cash and drugs at around 8am yesterday.
No one was hurt during the incident.
Police have also released pictures of a bicycle and a bag used during the offence.
He is described as 170cm tall, skinny build, ‘sun-hardened’ tanned complexion and tattoos on at least one arm.
Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
