Lower Paxton Township Police nab the suspect who they say held up a CVS Pharmacy and demanded prescription drugs at knifepoint.

It happened just before 11 p.m. Saturday at the store along the 6000 block of Allentown Boulevard.

22-year-old Joshua Goetz, of the 1800 block of Oxford Square in Bel Air, Md., faces a charge of felony robbery in connection with the heist. Police say Goetz was armed with a knife when he demanded narcotics. The pharmacist gave him some oxymorphone.

Police established a perimeter around the building and busted the robbery as Goetz sat in the waiting area for the medication, Lower Paxton Township Police Lt. Gary Seefeldt says.

Derry Township Police and Swatara Township Police assisted with the arrest.
