A Florida man in a surgical mask was caught by the police following a near-getaway after allegedly stealing thousands of pills in an alleged armed robbery of a pharmacy.
At approximately 6:00 p.m. on October 20, a man wearing a surgical mask and a hat walked into a CVS Pharmacy in Orlando.
He reportedly approached the clerk at the counter and handed them a note. The writing on the piece of paper allegedly said to give him all bottles of Oxycodone, Hydrocodone, Xanax, Adderall, Liquid codeine/promethazine, and Viagra they had in stock. The note reportedly specified that he would shoot the person closest to him if the pharmacy workers did not meet his demands. He added that after they filled a bag with the medications and the note, they were to lay on the ground, or he would shoot.
