CINCINNATI - A man was arrested Sunday after he allegedly robbed a downtown Cincinnati pharmacy last week.
Police say 30-year-old Eric Owens handed a threatening note to a pharmacist at Moore's Pharmacy downtown on May 24.
The note that Owens handed the pharmacist read "I want all of the OxyContin now or I'm going to start shooting."
The pharmacist complied, giving Owens the OxyContin before he fled.
Police identified Owens using traffic cams, a description from a witness and his fingerprints on the demand note. Owens also allegedly admitted the crime to police.
Owens is charged with three counts of aggravated robbery and remains behind bars on a $325,000 bond.
