Law enforcement officials are asking for help in finding a man who deputies believe attempted to rob a Raley’s supermarket in Auburn.

The man passed a note to a pharmacy clerk asking for specific pills at the store on Lincoln Way at about 9:15 a.m. Saturday. The clerk retreated to a safe place and the suspect left without the pills.

The store was evacuated and deputies, along with officers from other agencies, searched the Raley’s without finding the man, according to a sheriff’s department press release.

The man was described as white, between 35 and 45 years old. He was wearing a hooded black jacket, black pants, light-colored shoes and a baseball cap.

He may have some kind of association with a gray 2008-10 Dodge truck. Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff’s office at (530) 889-7800. To remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at (800) 923-8191.
