On Sunday at 1:15 PM SPD was called to a Robbery at the Walgreens located at 10929 E. Dynamite. The Pharmacist informed officers that a white male wearing a black jacket, hat and sunglasses handed a note demanding Oxycontin. The employee complied and the suspect left the store. No weapon was seen nor were there any injuries.
During the same time frame MCSO had notified SPD that a white male, fitting the description of the suspect, just took a family member’s SUV without their permission from their residence. He also took a shotgun. It was later learned that he made comments that would implicate him in the robbery. Officers went to the residence in the 32000 block of North 160th Street where MCSO deputies had the suspect in custody as he returned the vehicle.
A search of the suspect’s residence revealed proceeds from the crime. The suspect, Charles Dawe was booked on counts of Robbery, Weapons Misconduct, and Possession of Narcotic Drugs.
