Man pleads guilty to robbing Bath pharmacy

PORTLAND — A Dresden man pleaded guilty Tuesday in U.S. District Court to conspiring to rob the Walgreens pharmacy in Bath, U.S. Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced Wednesday.

When he is sentenced, Nicholas Alexander, 23, faces up to 20 years imprisonment and a fine of up to $250,000, Delahanty said in a press release.

According to the release, Alexander and others robbed the State Road pharmacy on June 14. Alexander handed a note to a pharmacist that read "You have 20 seconds to give me all your Oxycodone ... or I will blow your ... brains out."

Alexander received a bag containing 11 bottles of the prescription narcotic. He was later found at a Wiscasset motel with 600 tablets of the drug, and eventually admitted robbing the store, using some of the stolen tablets, and selling others.
