On October 18, 2008 at approximately 10:30 a.m., a white male
entered the CVS Pharmacy at 2809 S. Sossaman Road carrying a
brown paper bag. The unknown white male walked over to the

in the bag was a bomb and he wanted Oxycontin and Oxycodone. The
pharmacist complied with the suspect's demands and placed the
prescription drugs inside a plastic bag. The suspect exited the

colored bandana, sunglasses and a black jacket with skulls.
