Suspect arrested in Dickinson pharmacy robbery

Dickinson police have arrested Joshua Hunt, the man accused of robbing Irsfeld Pharmacy on Wednesday afternoon.

In a statement released Thursday morning, the police department said it located Hunt at a local truck stop on the East Business Loop at about 1:50 a.m. Thursday and arrested him without incident in conjunction with the robbery.

At about 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, the Dickinson Police Department responded to a report of a robbery at Irsfeld Pharmacy, located in the Great Plains Clinic building.

Hunt allegedly entered the pharmacy and demanded medication. He did not have a prescription, nor did he pay for one. Instead, Hunt passed an employee a threatening note which persuaded the employee to give him the medication.

Hunt is being held at the Southwest Multi-County Correction Center.
