MANCHESTER, NH – A city man was arrested in connection with an unarmed robbery of nine bottles of Oxycontin Nov. 5 from Rite Aid, 122 McGregor St.
At 1:38 p.m. a store clerk contacted Manchester Police immediately after the robbery and informed dispatch the unarmed assailant, later identified as Randy Drouin, 22, address unknown, fled the store with approximately nine bottles of Oxycontin.
Multiple uniformed officers and plain clothes detectives responded to the area and located a male subject running behind Catholic Medical Center, located next to Rite Aid, matching the description of Druoin.
Drouin initially fled from a plain clothes detective and refused to stop for him. The officers worked in unison while setting up a perimeter in an attempt to contain Drouin to a confined area. The plan worked and they eventually cornered and located him in front of 322 Putnam St.
Drouin remained uncooperative during the handcuffing and booking process, so he was taken to Hillsborough County House of Corrections. He will most likely appear in the 9th Circuit Court of Manchester on November 6. He was charged with criminal threatening, robbery and simple assault.
