Police Capt. Michon Morrow tells KFOR NEWS the man pushed his way behind the pharmacy counter, ripped the phone from the pharmacist and threw it to the floor. An employee managed to get the license plate number of the car in which he rode off. About 20 minutes later, authorities stopped it at 14th and Warlick Blvd, but the man had already swallowed some of the Fentanyl patches. He was taken to a hospital. The driver of the car, 35 year old, Lorisa Bowland was arrested for being an accessory and child neglect...she had her 7 month baby with her in the car.
