Three Arrested in Oaklyn CVS Robbery
Police say that two of the men charged in the incident had a familiarity with the pharmacy franchise, as they had been fired from another CVS location the week of the robbery.
A few weeks after issuing warrants for suspects wanted in the Dec. 12, 2012, strong-arm robbery of the Oaklyn CVS, police have charged three Camden City men in connection with the incident.
According to a statement provided by Oaklyn Police Chief Joseph Abbate, “all three are accused by police of planning the robbery and theft” and “evidence of this crime was recovered during the arrest of these individuals.”
Adrian Thomas, 19, Dhamiri Hughes Pettigrew, 21, and Darius Williams, 20, were arrested, charged and remanded to the Camden County correctional facility, where they await a Superior Court hearing.
Police say two of the men—including Hughes Pettigrew, whom security footage shows entering the store wearing a CVS shirt—were recently terminated by another CVS location and had knowledge of store operations.
Thomas was charged with conspiracy to commit theft; Hughes Pettigrew was charged with robbery, simple assault and theft; Williams was charged with conspiracy to commit theft. Hughes Pettigrew is being held on $50,000 bail, and Thomas and Williams are each being held on $5,000 bail.
