Chico police have arrested a man they say robbed a Walgreens pharmacy on Tuesday night.
The robbery happened at a little after 10:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Walgreens in the 800 block of East Avenue.
Police say the man walked straight to the pharmacy section and lifted his sweatshirt to expose a handgun before ordering the pharmacist to handover a “big bottle” of oxycodone. Officers said Wednesday the handgun was a replica.
The robber fled the area, but when officers reviewed surveillance video they instantly recognized the man as 25-year-old Jeffery Michael Graydon, according to a news release from the Chico Police Department.
On Wednesday, police obtained an arrest warrant for Graydon and found him in the 2200 block of Channel View Lane.
He was booked into the Butte County Jail on a charge of armed robbery.
