Scranton police say they were able to snag a would-be drug thief with the help of computer technology.
Police say an armed man held up the CVS pharmacy on Moosic Street overnight and was caught after the pharmacist threw a GPS tracking device into the stolen loot.
Scranton police say 35-year old Dannie Bradford of Wayne County is locked up at the Lackawanna County prison facing a slew of robbery, drug and assault charges after he allegedly held up a CVS Store at gun point.
Police say Bradford came to the 24-hour pharmacy on Moosic Street just after midnight Monday and demanded the prescription drug Adderall from the pharmacist.
“That`s a real bad thing because the kids today, they`re hook on these drugs and that`s why these robberies are going on, it`s all over, you know heavy medications,” said customer Jack Zak.
