A Kennebunk gunman faces robbery charges after allegedly forcing his way into a Biddeford pharmacy.

Police said Clay Duplessis Jr. showed up at the rear service entry of the CVS Pharmacy at 384 Elm St. at 5:44 a.m. with a .22-caliber rifle. He ordered the store manager to let him in and then open the pharmacy section of the store, where he stole the painkiller hydrodcodone and cash, police said.

The manager fled the store and called police. When officers arrived, witnesses provided a description and pointed out where the man had gone, and officers caught and charged him, police said.
