Sana Jose man suspected of being ‘Pink Panther’ pharmacy robber caught in Oakland

WATSONVILLE — A San Jose man has been arrested as a suspect in a weekend pharmacy robbery, identified in part by the Pink Panther sweatshirt he was wearing, police say.

Watsonville police say Elben Ramos, 26, jumped over a counter at a Freedom Boulevard Walgreens and filled a purple cloth bag with bottles of controlled substances around 6:40 a.m. Saturday. Assisting police in their investigation, a witness took a photo of the suspected thief’s vehicle and license plate, said Watsonville Sgt. Mish Radich. Store security footage also showed the man wearing sunglasses, a mouth-covering mask and a pink hooded sweatshirt.

Responding to a statewide alert to be on the lookout for the vehicle, Oakland police came across Ramos around 5 a.m. Sunday, parked in an auto parts store, Radich said.

“They find this guy asleep inside the car, wearing the exact same clothing the suspect was wearing,” Radich said. “And in plain view, they see a pill bottle that’s a pharmacy-sized pill bottle.”

Radich said Ramos, who was booked into Santa Cruz County Jail and has since been bailed out, was only in possession of one of the numerous pharmacy bottles reported missing.
