Moscow Police Bust ‘Drugstore Cowboys’

Moscow police have arrested a group suspected in the armed robbery of at least seven pharmacies, the city’s interior ministry reported on Friday.

“The attackers would strike in the evening, entering pharmacies, threatening the people there with a pneumatic gun – sometimes firing it – and demanding money and drugs,” the report said.

Nineteen such drugstore robberies have been registered in Moscow so far this year.
