AUGUSTA — A 33-year-old Augusta man was charged with robbing a city pharmacy.
Police say Jason Truman is being held on $5,000 bail following his arrest Saturday for last Monday's robbery at Wal-Mart.
Authorities say Truman allegedly gave an employee a note claiming he had a weapon and then making off with prescription painkillers.
Officials told the Kennebec Journal that Truman is not believed to be responsible for two other robberies at a CVS in recent weeks. Police continue to investigate those robberies and believe they may be connected.
