Walgreens Bookends Weekend With Crime
Tough week-end for the south side Walgreen's in La Crosse. A pharmacy tech got busted on Friday after months, police say, of stealing Oxycodone and Hydrocodone and selling the pills. The 24 year-old told cops she needed to sell the drugs to pay rent. And then there was the armed robbery at the same store right after midnight last night. Cops say a guy came in wearing a bandanna, hit a clerk over the head with a gun and got away with three cartons of cigarettes. Police arrested 19 year-old Joseph Strebe nearby for the robbery.
