CVS suspect threatened pharmacist police say
A man who walked into a pharmacy Thursday with a note demanding Oxycodone was later arrested, according to North Charleston police.
Joshua Cathey, 27, of Upjohn Road was charged with armed robbery, according to police spokesman Spencer Pryor.
Police said Cathey walked into the CVS at 1506 E. Montague Ave. and handed the pharmacist a note that said, "30mg Oxycodone give it to me you'll die or they will kill me."
The pharmacist gave him the pills and he left. Officers were able to recognize the man from the pharmacist's description and arrested him on Upjohn Road, Pryor said.
Cathey was jailed in March on a petit larceny charge and credited with 19 days served, according to court records.
