Robbery


   * Bristol Tennessee Police Department officers were dispatched around 7:24 p.m. Sunday to the Medical Mall Pharmacy at Bristol Regional Medical Center after receiving a report of a robbery. When officers arrived, they found hospital security officers had taken a white male subject into custody. The man was identified as Garnett W. Allison III, 20, 201 Fair Acres Drive, Bristol, Tenn. Witnesses said the subject entered the pharmacy wearing a black toboggan, placed gloves on his hands and proceeded to the door leading to the area where drugs are stored. The suspect immediately demanded drugs -- specifically Loritab, according to the report. The pharmacist pointed to the area where the Loritab was kept and the masked robber helped himself to the shelf, placing drugs into a white plastic bag. The suspect then attempted to flee the pharmacy but was detained when patrons outside the pharmacy came to the rescue. A male patron held the exit door closed which the suspect was attempting to exit through, keeping him from fleeing the scene. No injuries were sustained and all drugs were recovered. Allison was charged with robbery and was to be arraigned Monday in Sullivan County General Sessions Court.
   * Bristol Tennessee Police Department officers were dispatched around 11:43 p.m. Saturday to Roadrunner Market, 4403 Hwy. 11E, Bluff City, regarding an armed robbery. Officers were responding to the scene when they spotted a vehicle traveling north on Volunteer Parkway that matched the description given by the store clerk. Officers Walter Brown and Craig Kestner turned on the vehicle and pursued it until it exited onto Old Bluff City Highway at Bristol Bag Co. The occupants were removed from the vehicle and taken into custody. Upon searching the red four-door Honda Civic, officers found a red bank bag containing an undisclosed amount of cash in the floor on the passenger side, along with a .9 mm semi-automatic handgun. Through investigation it was learned that a black male subject had driven the Honda onto the lot at Roadrunner and began pumping fuel into the tank while a black female went into the restroom inside the market. While the clerk was observing the male suspect who was pumping fuel, the female left the restroom and approached the counter where the clerk was standing. The woman then pulled a semi-automatic weapon from her pocket and holding it about 1-1/2 feet from the clerk, ordered her to get a bag and empty the cash from the register into it. The clerk obeyed and the woman placed the bag into her waistband, then left the building. The female, identified as Frances L. Walker, 23, 30 Oakview St., Bristol, Va., left the scene with the black male, identified as Anthony Scott, 21, 651 Quarry St., Bristol, Va. Both suspects were charged with aggravated robbery and were scheduled for arraignment Monday.
   * Officers of Johnson City Police Bureau responded around 2:15 a.m. Friday to Sunoco, 601 W. Watauga Ave., to a report of an armed robbery. According to the clerk and witnesses, two black males entered the store and displayed a handgun, demanding money from the register. The males then left the store with an undisclosed amount of cash and fled the scene. The investigation is continuing. Anyone having information is asked to contact the Criminal Investigation Division at 434-6166, or to remain anonymous, call Crimestoppers, 434-6158.
   * Officers of Johnson City Police Bureau responded around 2 p.m. Thursday to Redi-Mart Discount Tobacco Store, 400 N. Broadway, regarding an armed robbery.
