A MAYLANDS man has been arrested on suspicion of armed robberies of two local pharmacies.
The robbery at the Maylands Amcal happened December 30, 2019 when a masked man claiming to be armed threatened staff and demanded prescription drugs. The Inglewood 777 was targeted on May 7, when a robber entered the pharmacy and again demanded prescription drugs.
Police flooded the streets after the incident, using sniffer dogs and interviewed neighbouring businesses asking for more CCTV.
The alleged robber was arrested a few blocks away in a Harrow Street home. Police executed a warrant and charged him with two counts of armed robbery, one count of possessing drug paraphernalia with prohibited drugs in it, and one count of being disguised to commit an offence.
The 35-year-old man fronts court on June 5.
