About 4:30pm Saturday, March 13th, police responded to a report of a robbery at the CVS Pharmacy at Hwy 37 South and Hwy 60 West in Mitchell.

I’m currently on vacation in Florida, but I’ve heard that it was the pharmacy that was robbed and that the thief demanded Oxycontin.

UPDATE: Wednesday, March 17th, a CVS pharmacy on East 3rd Street in Bloomington was also robbed, apparently in a similar manner to the Mitchell CVS robbery.  A handgun was displayed and the thief demanded Oxycontin and Methadone.  I’m told that police have a suspect in both robberies and actually had him in custody at one point but he is now at-large and being sought.
