Georgetown Police said an accused armed robber didn't make it out of the parking lot of the business before being arrested.

Investigators said John Krider walked into a Walgreens on South Broadway around 4:30 p.m. on Friday with a pellet gun and demanded the prescription painkiller Oxycontin.

Police said the pharmacist gave him a lower grade narcotic at which time Krider left the store and walked to a car in the Walgreens parking lot.

Investigators said there was a police officer in the immediate area who pulled up behind the car and arrested Krider.

Police also said there was a man in the trunk of the car taking pills.

Investigators said that man was taken to the hospital for precautionary reasons.
