Woman arrested in pharmacy robbery

LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC (WIS) - Lexington County Sheriff's deputies arrested a woman on Monday after they say she was trying to steal prescription painkillers from a CVS store.

Shanna Marie Daigle, 25, was charged after a deputy responded to a call concerning the robbery at the CVS Pharmacy at 2908 Emanuel Church Road, Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said.

The deputy saw a person who matched the description of the robber exit the front door of the pharmacy and get in the driver's seat of a gray 2005 Nissan Frontier pickup truck that was parked in the pharmacy's parking lot, Koon said.

Deputies say several bottles of prescription painkillers, including methadone, Oxycontin and hydrocodone fell out of Daigle's clothing when the deputy took her into custody.

According to the arrest warrant, Daigle walked into the pharmacy with her hand in her pocket, leading employees to think she was armed with a gun. The warrant said Daigle demanded that employees at the pharmacy counter provide her with all the prescription painkillers in stock.
