WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A Wichita man has pleaded guilty to stealing prescription drugs during an armed robbery.

Thirty-four-year-old Ryan Schmidt on Thursday admitted to commercial robbery and brandishing a firearm. He says he used a gun when he ordered a Gessler’s Drug Store employee to give him medication in September.

Schmidt took seven bottles of hydrocodone and three bottles of promethazine. Police say he led officers on a high-speed chase before hitting a utility pole and another vehicle.

Schmidt faces between 14 and 25 years in federal prison when he is sentenced in March.
