SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Sioux Falls police say they’ve arrested a suspect in Thursday’s armed robbery of a convenience store and pharmacy.
Authorities say a man walked into a Walgreens about 9 a.m., went to the rear pharmacy and told the clerk he had a weapon. He demanded prescription pills and cash, grabbed the items and left. Some U.S. Marshals who were nearby saw the suspect leave the store with a basket full of prescriptions and detained him until police arrived.
Police say the same man is suspected in the 2:30 a.m. robbery of a Get-n-Go. The suspect in that crime said he had a gun, demanded money and cigarettes and ran off with cash and a carton.
Formal charges are pending for the 24-year-old Michigan man.
