Alleged Pharmacy Robbers Caught PDF Print
Thursday, 13 September 2007 09:54

Caldwell County authorities say they know who’s responsible for armed pharmacy robberies in Ohio and Texas.

Matthew Triplet and Roy Jacob Blair, both of the Hartland Community near Lenoir, are alleged to have rented cars and driven over a thousand miles to commit the robberies. Both were arrested at home around 4 a.m. this morning. Caldwell County authorities say the two are in custody on fugitive warrants, not for committing crimes in North Carolina. Officers say a fingerprint found in one of the pharmacies led to the Caldwell arrests. A search of the suspects’ residence led to the discovery of weapons and Oxycodine that link the two to a robbery in Texas. Both are being held on a $300,000 bond. Sources within the Caldwell County Sheriff’s Office say the matter has been turned over to the FBI.
