Lufkin PD: Woman claimed suspect gave him a ride to pharmacy, stole his medications

Posted: Updated:
LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Investigators with the Lufkin Police Department are investigating a robbery that allegedly occurred on the morning of Jan. 8. The victim didn't report the robbery until Monday morning.

According to the police report, the complainant told police that she was picked up at a Lufkin doctor's office by an unidentified male suspect in a large, brown car. The suspect took the complainant to the Walgreen's Pharmacy in the 1200 block of W. Frank Ave., where the complainant obtained prescription medication.

The complainant said that the suspect then took her to an unknown location, according to the police report. The woman told police that the suspect parked the vehicle behind buildings at the unknown location, forcibly took the medications from him, and kicked the woman out of the vehicle before he drove off.

According to the police officer's narrative, the woman told him that she had just left the emergency room Monday morning after being treated for injuries she sustained in the robbery. However, her discharge papers referenced kidney issues.

In the narrative, the LPD officer asked the woman about her past reports of similar incidents "around this time of the month" that she admitted were untruthful. The woman told the officer that, this time, she was telling the truth.

The officer also asked the woman about her tendency to abuse her prescription medication. In the narrative, the woman didn't deny it but "did advise she was not under the influence of her prescription medications every time she had been arrested in the past."

The police report said the prescription medication included a bottle each of 30 days worth of Hydrocodone, Mirtzapine, and Alprazolam.

The alleged robbery is still under investigation.
