DES MOINES, Iowa — Four people have been arrested and charged in connection to a robbery at a Des Moines Walgreens.
It happened at East 25th and Euclid, Monday around 4:00 a.m. A pharmacist said a woman came and told him a man had her children and would hurt them if she didn’t bring him a certain prescription painkiller. The pharmacist handed over six bottles with over 500 pills.
That woman was later identified as Andrea Small. A witness saw her get into a car and gave police the license number. They tracked the car to a house on Richmond Avenue.
Police say Small was there with Adam Gritton, Kristina Blake, and Whitney Wall. The pills and the clothing Small was wearing at the pharmacy were located at the home.
All four are charged with possession with intent to deliver. Small also faces a second degree robbery charge.
