Arrest in Drug Store Robberies

Deer Park (WALK) - The robber who made off with prescription painkillers in two recent robberies at the same pharmacy is now under arrest, according to Suffolk Police.

Richard Dombroff turned himself in Monday, reportedly after realizing that police were looking for him. Detectives had reportedly zeroed in on Dombroff after circulating security camera photos of their suspect in two robberies of a CVS store on Deer Park Avenue in Deer Park.

The first hold-up happened on September 22nd, when a man jumped over the counter and took prescription medication by force. The same man returned to the store two weeks later, on October 6th, and again stole prescription medication.

Dombroff, 22, is being arraigned this morning on robbery charges at First District Court in Central Islip.
