The Latest: Teens Arrested For Separate Rite Aid Robberies

Arrests have been made in the robbery of a pharmacy in Corning, believed to be the same robbers who hit a pharmacy in East Redding. At 3:12PM Monday afternoon two men took prescription drugs during a robbery at the Rite Aid Pharmacy at Churn Creek and Cypress. No weapons were seen in the hold up, but a pharmacy clerk was apparently assaulted after the robbers jumped over the pharmacy counter. Hundreds of bottles of medication were taken in the heist and stuffed into pillow cases before the men fled on foot southbound on Churn Creek Road. The men were wearing large jackets with the hoods cinched up so tight, the store employees could not describe them well, but witnesses who were outside the store when the robbers emerged say both men were African-American. Just over an hour later, at 4:25PM, Corning Police were called to the Rite Aid on Edith Avenue. Employees said two black men came into the store, jumped over the pharmacy counter and demanded prescription pills, which they were given. They fled in a gray Ford Focus that was parked behind the building. A short time later a Glenn County Sheriff’s Deputy spotted the car on Interstate Five near the Colusa County line and pulled it over. The car was reported stolen out of Sacramento. Inside were 26-year-old Omar Deavone Davis and two 16-year-old males, all of them from Sacramento. Some of the stolen pills were also reportedly found in the car. The three suspects were transported back to Corning Police Department, and then booked into jail and juvenile hall. No weapons were seen in either robbery.
