Two charged in July pharmacy robbery



Chatham-Kent police charged two men nearly two weeks ago following a robbery that took place nine days before that.

Confused? So are we over the time taken to get the information to the public.

The robbery took place July 29, shortly after 9 a.m. when a masked gunman entered the Medical Place Pharmacy on Emma Street and demanded Fentanyl patches.

Police say pharmacy staff handed over an undisclosed amount of patches, and the suspect fled the scene.

A police manhunt ensued, led by the OPP tactical response team and its canine, who swept the north side of the river searching for clues.

On Aug. 7, police arrested two Chatham men, aged 29 and 27. The eldest is charged with robbery, assault with a weapon, pointing a firearm, wearing a disguise with intent and weapons dangerous. The younger one faces an accessory after the fact charge.
