MAGNOLIA, Del. (AP) - Delaware state police arrested a man for allegedly threatening pharmacists with explosives if they didn’t give him prescription drugs.

Police say the incident occurred at about 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, when a man walked into a Walgreens pharmacy on West Birdie Lane in Magnolia and passed a note to the pharmacist demanding Percocet and Xanax in a bag. The suspect told the pharmacist that he had explosives strapped to his body and that if she didn’t hand over the prescription pills he’d blow up the pharmacy. He added that he was being coerced by people parked in a car outside the pharmacy.

26-year-old Curtis Kuhn was arrested and charged with attempted robbery, attempted theft and terroristic threatening. A search revealed he had no explosives on his body.
