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 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.
