Due to ongoing investigation, I'll be brief. Last night, working at the pharmacy, a robber came in demanding Oxycontin. I thought it was a joke. So I asked if he had a gun? He lifted his shirt to reveal a pistol, which I immediately recognized as a Glock, carried Mexican style.

He asked for all the Oxycontin. So I went behind the counter and gingerly lifted the phone, laid it on the counter and dialed 911. I can barely hear the operator answering the call. All the while I was making loud noises with a paper bag saying, "SO YOU WANT ALL THE OXYCONTIN? OK, OK, I'LL GIVE YOU EVERYTHING MAN." I was hoping the 911 operator would figure out what was going on.

I went to the safe, rummaged around there trying to stall him. He kept counting down for me--Like a shuttle launch. "You have 40 seconds....30 seconds...20 seconds...." A co worker saw what was happening and dialed 911 on his cell phone.

The robber continued repeating, "give me the bag, give me the bag!" I tried to stall him some more. He then counted, "5, 4, 3, 2, 1," pulled out his glock and racked the Slide. :wow: At this point, I thought the game's over, lets toss the bag to him. The coworker thought I was about to get blown away.

The robber fled on foot. He fell a few times while running, dropped the gun, then regained gun, and finally got into an awaiting getaway car w/driver.

The police dept descended onto my location like flies on poop. The turds were caught.

For all the excitment, I was so surprised by my reaction. I wasn't nervous. My heart wasn't racing. Everyone was laughing about it after it was all over.

Good for you, congrats, you did the right thing.

Too bad you couldn't have shot him as soon as he threatened you with the gun.

Wow, glad to hear it worked out and the perps got caught.. Also glad to hear you're dealing with it well. I've known some people that after being robbed at gunpoint, they're never the same and nearly have a nervous break down. I guess everybody deals with it differently.

Good job! You went well beyond what should be expected of an employee. I have no doubt that those extra seconds you gave the police were probably very helpful in their capturing this guy.

I guess it goes without saying that you wre forbidden to CCW at work?

Yup! If I had a gun, I would've had plenty of time to put 2 rounds to COM. But I'm glad it turned out the way it did. I would hate to kill anyone, even robbers.

Good reaction! I was held up three times when I lived in Boston, twice at work in a store and once on the street. I really didn't care either and yet some guys did (it happened a lot). You learned something valuable about yourself in a gun to the head situation and I bet you know wether or not you could pull the trigger on him too. Well could ya?

Oxycontin is better than real money with the local purveyors of sex or stolen goods or other "stimulants.".


Glad you are all right!

Armed robbery should send someone away for life.

You handled it great. May I suggest your pharmacy put some placebo pills in that safe in case there is a next time.

Everyone is going to time lock safes around here. There are signs on the doors saying if you want Oxycontn it will take 30 min to fill the prescription. It is helping on hold up's.

If it ever happens again, you should 'accidentally' give the bad guy something else. Like birth control pills.

Good job. But this is kind of scary since my sister is a Pharmacist. I am glad you made it out alright.

Mix laxatives with Cialis.

Let him live the life of a hardened criminal on the run.
