Payette man charged with robbing pharmacy


BOISE, Idaho (AP) _ Police in Payette have arrested a 51-year-old man after a weekend pharmacy robbery.
The Idaho Statesman reports Mark Shirey is charged with armed
robbery of the pharmacy at the Payette Albertsons.
Payette Police Chief Mark Clark says a man approached the
pharmacy window at about 10 a.m. Sunday wearing a suit and tie. Clark says the man asked for the narcotic Oxycontin and told the employee he had something in his briefcase that ``he could light the place up with.''
Clark says the manager gave the suspect a large amount of the
drug and he left the store.
Clark says someone in the store recognized Shirey and he was
arrested at his house Sunday evening. The drugs were located in his
house and vehicle.
