Three people are in custody after Bangor Police say a pharmacy on Union Street was robbed, again. It’s the fourth time the Rite Aid at Union and 14th Streets has been in hit in less than six months. Police were called to the pharmacy just before 5 p.m. Monday.They say someone walked in, demanded prescription pills, then ran off. The person was seen heading south on Union Street, toward Hammond. Police pulled over a car in the area shortly after the robbery. TV5 was there when, about an hour later, police arrested one woman and two men at the Bangor Efficiency Apartments on Hammond. Sgt. Paul Edwards says, “There was no threat of any kind of weapon or anything like that. No weapons were used on the commission of this crime. It did in fact horrify and scare the poor people at our pharmacies here that have to deal with this, it seems like a lot lately.”Police have not said yet how the people in custody could be related to the robbery. The pharmacy was most recently robbed a week ago, Sunday. It was also targeted twice in May.
