A man from South Thomaston is accused of stealing at least %15,000 worth of drugs from a pharmacy in Rockland last summer. Police arrested 28-year-old Michael Willis Tuesday and charged him with robbery. They say he’s responsible for holding up Jensen’s Pharmacy on July 31st. Police say Willis was wearing a fedora and a sport coat when he handed the pharmacist a note demanding oxycodone. We’re told no weapon was shown but the note referred to a gun. Willis allegedly made off with hundreds of pills. He was arrested after a joint investigation between Rockland Police and the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency. Willis is out of jail on bail.
