United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty, II announced that Nicholas Alexander, 23, of Dresden, Maine, was sentenced in United States District Court by Judge George Z. Singal to 28 months’ imprisonment, to be followed by three years of supervised release, for conspiring to rob a Walgreens pharmacy in Bath. Alexander pleaded guilty to the charge on September 24, 2013.
According to court records, Alexander and other individuals participated in the June 14, 2013 robbery of the Bath Walgreens. Alexander handed a note to a pharmacist that read, "You have 20 seconds to give me all your Oxycodone 15mg tablets and 30s or I will blow your [expletive] brains out." As a result, Alexander was given a bag containing 11 bottles of Oxycodone tablets. Alexander was later found at a motel in Wiscasset, where investigators found almost 600 Oxycodone tablets. In a subsequent interview, Alexander admitted robbing the store, using some of the stolen tablets, and selling others.
The investigation was conducted by the Bath Police Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency, and the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office. United States Attorney Delahanty praised the cooperative actions of the local, county, state, and federal agencies. "The United States Attorney’s Office has put a special emphasis on the investigation and prosecution of pharmacy robberies in the state of Maine. I am pleased that the cooperative effort of law enforcement at all levels resulted in the successful conclusion of this case."
