PORTLAND, ME—United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty, II announced that Nicholas Alexander, 23, of Dresden, pled guilty yesterday in U.S. District Court to conspiring to rob the Walgreens pharmacy in Bath, Maine.
According to court records, on June 14, 2013, Alexander and others robbed the Walgreens pharmacy in Bath. 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 with 600 oxycodone tablets. In an interview, Alexander admitted robbing the store and using some of the stolen tablets and selling others.
Alexander faces up to 20 years’ imprisonment and a fine of up to $250,000. He will be sentenced after completion of a pre-sentence report by the United States Probation Office.
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.
