FRANKLIN, Ind. (WISH) - Franklin police have two people in custody for the alleged robbery at Henderson Pharmacy.
Davonte Hubbard was arrested Tuesday on a preliminary charge of armed robbery. Devan Twitchell was arrested Wednesday on a preliminary charge of aiding in the armed robbery.
During their research, police say a third suspect, Hayden Glass, died of an overdose the day after the robbery.
According to a release, around 10:20 a.m. May 16, two male suspects entered Henderson Pharmacy, 100 E. Jefferson St. The two had hand guns and demanded prescription medication. Police say staff was held at gunpoint.
The suspects then fled the store on foot with an undisclosed amount of prescription medication. The pharmacist chased the suspects and fired shots as they got in the back of a van.
Police add a critical tip from a resident help connect the players in this investigation.
"Without the help from the public we would not be having this conference," said Franklin Police Chief Tim O'Sullivan.
Investigators say Hubbard and Twitchell are Indianapolis Public high school students.
Owner of Henderson's Pharmacy Travis Richey added he believes Glass purchased prescriptions before from the pharmacy. However he noted there was nothing that indicated he would be capable of holding them up. Because of this scare Richey now carries a .45 in a holster by his side.
"Pharmacy robberies are on the rise, we are not immune and this robbery proves it," said Richey.
