MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) –Two men have been arrested in connection with the armed robbery of a CVS Pharmacy last week of over 1,500 pills, according to Myrtle Beach Police spokesperson David Knipes.
Matthew Hellman, 22, from Pawleys Island, and 23-year-old Murrells Inlet resident Casey Pegram, were arrested Friday and charged with armed robbery, receiving stolen goods, unlawful carrying of pistol, possession of weapon during violent crime, drug possession.
According to court documents, Pegram posted bond totaling $25,000 and was released Saturday. Hellman remains in custody at the J. Reuben Long Detention Center.
A man robbed the CVS Pharmacy Thursday night and fled with over 1,500 pills of Oxycodone and Xanax, according to a Myrtle Beach Police Department incident report.
At about 7 p.m. Thursday, a man in hooded sweatshirt, jeans, and a baseball cap entered the store located 930 82nd Parkway and went directly to the back of the store, witnesses told police. The suspect walked up to the counter and handed the victim a note and a brown paper bag.
The suspect then gave the impression that he had a weapon under his shirt, the police report states. The suspect followed another victim while the victim retrieved items from under the counter, and then fled after he was handed the bag.
The report states that over 1,500 pills were stolen. The suspect ran off, and a witness followed him outside to see him get into a vehicle and drive away.
The suspect's vehicle was located a short time later.
