The man who police say robbed a CVS Pharmacy in Rock Hill has turned himself in, police say.
Rock Hill Police spokesman Mark Bollinger confirmed to WRHI early Thursday evening that Jason Thatcher surrendered to a York County Sheriff’s Deputy earlier in the day.
Thatcher is charged with Armed Robbery, Possession of a Weapon during a crime of violence, Pointing and Presenting a Firearm, Trafficking Oxycodone-second offense and Trafficking Oxycodone in proximity to a school.
He remains in custody at the Rock Hill City Jail on $500,000 bond.
Earlier this week, Bollinger said detectives identified Thatcher as the suspect in the pharmacy robbery.
At approximately, 10:09 a.m., Thatcher allegedly walked in the drugstore and presented a note demanding drugs to a pharmacist at the rear of the store.
The note read “All Oxycodone 15mg and 30mg. All Hydromorphone. Stay quiet and calm,” according to a Rock Hill Police report.
The clerk behind the counter then told police the suspect motioned to his side exposing a black object at his waist band and said, “Don’t make a scene.”
The pharmacist gave the suspect an undisclosed amount of drugs in a brown paper bag and the man fled the store.
