A Temple man has been arrested for attempting to rob a drug store in 2012. Jack Andrew Melancon tried to get codeine from the Westside Drug store on the 1500 block of S. 31st Street on December 17.
When officers arrived they learned that Melancon had entered the store and asked for a prescription. Police say Melancon was known to the employees of the pharmacy and had provided his name when he initially asked for the non-existent prescriptions.
When employees told the suspect there was no prescription for him he demanded codeine and claimed to have a gun, yet he never showed a weapon to the employees.
The employees refused to give the suspect anything and told him he needed to leave. Melancon fled the scene and was arrested on January 12 without incident at the 4200 block of Lower Troy Road.
