Pharmacy Robbed for Prescription Painkiller

WILMINGTON-- Police say a robber walked into a well-known pharmacy and walked away with prescription drugs.

Wilmington police say a young man walked into Tom's Drug Store shortly before 6:00 Friday night, handed the pharmacist a note, and demanded Oxycontin.

The robber said if he didn't get his pills he would kill the clerk and had his hand in a bag as if he had a weapon.

The clerk handed over the pills and the robber left.

Oxycontin is a pain medication that can be used as an addictive drug.
