Federal prosecutors say Anthony Post of Augusta is accused of robbing the CVS pharmacy Tuesday
AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - A 19-year-old Maine man has been arrested in a pharmacy robbery in Augusta earlier this week.
Federal prosecutors say Anthony Post of Augusta is accused of robbing the CVS pharmacy Tuesday, ordering a pharmacy technician in a note to put all oxycodone in a bag and threatening that he had a gun and would shoot.
He left the store with several bottles of Cxycontin.
Prosecutors say after his photograph appeared in the news, several witnesses came forward and identified him.
Post made an initial court appearance on Thursday and was detained pending trial.
