SAVANNAH, GA (December 1, 2015): Information from witnesses aided Robbery Unit detectives of Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department in arresting Sidney Wall, 55, for a Saturday night armed robbery, at CVS Pharmacy on the 12000 block of Abercorn Street.
At about 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, Metro responded to CVS, where minutes earlier an armed male reportedly walked behind the pharmacy counter demanding prescription drugs from employees. The suspect left with the stolen items in his possession.
Witnesses observed the suspect exit the store, then drive away in a red Ford pick-up truck. Responding Metro officers found the truck unoccupied at a retirement community on Peachtree Drive, prompting a search of the area. Metro officers found Wall, who matched the suspect’s description, walking away from the scene. Wall was detained with the stolen medication in his possession. He later confessed to the crime and was arrested without incident.
Wall is now charged with armed robbery of a pharmacy, possession of a firearm/knife in committing a crime and possession of a controlled substance oxycodone.
