A suspect wanted in connection with an alleged attempted robbery at the Town of Essex Shoppers Drug mart over the weekend has turned himself in.

Essex OPP are thanking the public for their assistance in identifying the man after an image from surveillance video was released to the media.

On Sunday, police say a male suspect entered the pharmacy at 5 Talbot Street in the Town of Essex.

He is said to have demanded narcotics, but fled the store empty-handed when he was confronted by the pharmacist.

The male is scheduled to make a court appearance on Monday.
