Jeffersonville pharmacist pulls gun on would-be robber, police say | recordonline.com
A baseball-wielding Youngsville man tried to rob a Jeffersonville pharmacy but was thwarted by a gun-wielding pharmacist Wednesday afternoon, according to the Sullivan County Sheriff's Office.
Deputies say that Robert Roach, 55, entered Jeff Pharmacy on Route 52 wearing a ski mask and waving a baseball bat about 2:45 p.m. Roach demanded drugs, but fled in a green Chevrolet pickup when the pharmacist, a retired corrections officer, drew a gun.
Police used leads to locate Roach 20 minutes later at a nearby residence, deputies said, and he was arrested trying to flee through the back door. Roach is being held at the sheriff's patrol building pending formal charges.
