Dare Co. – A man was arrested and charged over the weekend for the armed robbery of a Walgreens store in Kill Devil Hills.

On Saturday, December 1, 2012 at approximately 12:30 p.m. police say a white male wearing large sunglasses and a dark hooded sweatshirt entered the Walgreens store located in Kill Devil Hills. Police say the suspect handed the pharmacists a note stating he had a gun, and demanded Hydromorphone pills. Hydomorphone is a narcotic drug.

Police say when the suspect noticed one of the pharmacists calling for help, he jumped the counter to try to stop her. The suspect then ran out of the store and headed south where his vehicle was parked in an adjoining business, police say.
