Newark NJ Man Charged with Armed Robbery of Local Pharmacy

Newark NJ Pharmacy Robbery ChargesNewark NJ police arrested a local man accused of committing an armed robbery at a Newark pharmacy.

According to prosecutors, the suspect and two other men committed the robbery on November 18. The suspect and his co-conspirators allegedly entered the St. Peter’s Pharmacy located on Ropes Place in the North Ward of Newark NJ around 10:00 a.m. All of the suspects were reportedly wearing masks to conceal their faces as they stole medication bottles. At least one of the suspects allegedly brandished a firearm during the robbery.

After stealing the medicine, the suspects reportedly ran out of the pharmacy and fled the area in a stolen rental vehicle: a 2016 Nissan Altima.

Newark police officers later saw the stolen car on North 6th Street in Newark NJ, but they were unable to catch the suspects when they got out of the motor vehicle and fled on foot.

A subsequent search of the area allegedly led to the discovery of a loaded .45-caliber handgun.

Members of the Newark Fugitive Apprehension Team eventually tracked down the suspect at his Newark residence and placed him under arrest without incident. The other two suspects in the pharmacy robbery are still at-large.

The suspect, a 24-year-old man from Newark NJ, has been charged with numerous crimes, including armed robbery, unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, and conspiracy to commit robbery.
