— The suspect in the Feb. 9 Walgreens robbery on Oakland Avenue was arrested Thursday in North Carolina.

Rock Hill Detectives will be working with North Carolina Authorities to have him extradited. He faces armed robbery charges.

The robbery prompted Winthrop University to issue a warning to students. Police said the suspect handed a note to the pharmacist demanding controlled substances, including Oxycodone and Hydromorphone. He indicated he had a weapon, but the pharmacist didn't see a gun, police said. The robber made off with $300 worth of prescription drugs.
