An armed robbery reported at a north Johnson City retail pharmacy Monday evening ended with one person in custody, marking the third such incident in a month.

Johnson City police were called to the Walgreen’s at the corner of Carroll Creek Road and North Roan Street in Boones Creek about 8:30 p.m.

Johnson City Police Department Lt. Scott Jenkins said about 11:30 p.m. that one person had been taken into custody. He said the department’s Criminal Investigation Division would release further information as the investigation progressed.

Johnson City Walgreen’s stores were robbed twice in September -- on North State of Franklin Road on Sept. 14 and on Bobby Hicks Highway in Gray on Sept. 8. Police said after the second robbery that the two may have been related.

There was no information available Monday as to whether the latest robbery was connected to the first two.
