A Sword Wielder Robs Walgreens In Glendale (as published in the Denver Post) ~
GLENDALE — A 19-year-old man held up a Walgreens in Glendale with a sword Tuesday evening.
He ran off with a cache of the painkiller Oxycontin, but he was chased down by police about a hundred yards away, according to authorities.
The man's name wasn't released pending his booking, said Glendale police Sgt. Joe Silla.
The red-haired teen, dressed in black jeans and a black T-shirt, wielded a Samurai-style sword during the 6:30 p.m. holdup, Silla said.
You know times are rough when a kid resorts to holding up a Walgreens with a sword for painkillers.
Truth is indeed stranger than fiction.
