I cannot believe a licensed pharmacist did this. What a terrible thing. I wonder why he chose to rob CVS in Danville, and what the motive was. Selling, using? We may never know.

It does seem quite strange that a pharmacist would rob another pharmacy. Usually these acts are caused by desperate people, and based on the drugs he took my guess is he himself or maybe a loved one such as a son or daughter suffers from drug addiction. There is currently an opiod epidemic in this country so i am not surprised by any means. If your wife or husband or one of your own children suffered in any form, i know most parents or
loved ones would kill to see they were out of harm. Since i don't know the details, nor do i need to, i hope whatever the case he does not recieve much prison time if any at all. This sounds like someone left with no options, not like a cold blooded heartless individual. My heart goes out to all.
