Teenage Suspect Arrested in Pharmacy Robbery

Milwaukee Police have arrested a teenage suspect wanted for a pharmacy robbery. District Four officers responded to the Walgreens at 9040 W. Good Hope Road at 6:45 p.m. on January 26 for a report of a robbery. Employees told police two suspects entered the store, approached the pharmacy, and handed the pharmacist a note demanding drugs and threatening to shoot. The suspects took the drugs and fled on foot. Responding officers saw the suspects run into a wooded area near the store and began to chase them. They were able to catch and arrest one suspect, a 16-year-old Milwaukee male, and found the drugs the pair stole from the pharmacy. Police are still searching for the other suspect and anyone with information on their whereabouts are asked to call District 4 at 414-935-7242. MPD will present charges against the 16-year-old to the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office in the coming days.
