A pharmacy employee reported the robbery around 1:10 p.m. at the store on Fourth Avenue, police said. 

Police said a man identified as Khavaughn Anquan Cochran, 21, passed a note to the employee demanding a list of drugs to be emptied out of a safe. 

“Cochran reportedly had his hand in his coat pocket leading CVS employees to fear he may have a gun,” Sidney police Capt. J A Tangeman said in a prepared statement.

Cochran was booked into the Shelby County Jail just after 4:30 p.m. pending the filing of formal felony counts of robbery and drug possession, according to online jail records.
