NEWPORT-A white male who hid his face tried to rob the
Family Discount Drugs on West Broadway on Thursday, Sept. 19, the Newport
Police Department reported.
The man allegedly told a pharmacist around 11:25 a.m.,
"Give me a box of Oxycontin," Capt. Scott Lamb reported.
The pharmacist allegedly replied the store did not have a
box of Oxycontin.
The would-be robber then allegedly said, "I am not
serious", and ran out of the pharmacy, according to the report.
