Fairfax police think they have captured their Spider-Man bandit.
The suspect was wanted in a robbery Monday of a grocery store pharmacist in Burke. The pharmacist said someone entered the pharmacy area of the Giant grocery store and demanded the painkiller OxyContin.
After getting the drugs, the suspect left the store wearing a Spider-Man mask.
