I have not heard either way on that one.

The picture was the wrong Walgreen's. The one robbed was in Central Square by the Wyman School

Yea, pretty important for people to know that the picture used is of the wrong Walgreens. The one that was robbed is the pharmacy one down by, as Janet said, the Wyman School/Jack's Variety.

Wow less than a mile away from my house. I go to jacks variety slot. I hope they catch the robbers.

Appreciate the feedback, Rob and Janet. The photo used is a file photo of Walgreens. I will dig a little further to see if there was anything else in the archives that shows the Walgreens at 675 Main Street.

Matt, it was the former Eaton Pharmacy.

I was unable to locate a photo of the 675 Main Street location in our archives, so to avoid confusion I went with a WPD photo instead. Thanks again for the feedback!

No new info??

Even though it was the wrong picture, the article listed the correct address, 675 main st. My husband was in there just minutes before it happened.

Nothing new to report as of this morning, according to police.
Brian Kenyon January 10, 2014 at 10:27 PM
Still nothing new? I just read they zip tied the clerks and stile wedding rings from the people and narcotics from the pharmacy.
