Robbing for Prescription Drug

On Jan. 31, detectives working on a narcotics investigation served a search warrant in the 13000 block of Telegraph Road and seized marijuana and prescription pills. At the scene, they found evidence connected to the Walgreens robbery. Detectives issued warrants charged McArthur with robbery and use of a firearm in a felony, but have been unable to find him.
