Arrest made in pharmacy armed robbery

JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - A Jonesboro man accused of robbing a pharmacy earlier this month appeared in court Monday.

According to a probable cause affidavit, Dequavis Logan appeared for an aggravated robbery and theft charge.

Jonesboro police responded to CVS Pharmacy at 110 Southwest Drive regarding an aggravated robbery that happened around 6:30 p.m. on Sept. 18.

Police were told a tall, thin black male entered the store wearing a mask, head covering, gloves, black pants, and a long-sleeve white shirt with white shoes.

The affidavit stated Logan walked up to the counter, telling the clerk, “empty the drawers and don’t push any buttons or alarms.”

Logan then had the clerks place the money on the counter and displayed the firearm multiple times.

After taking the money, Logan then walked out of the front door, got into a black four-door vehicle, and left the scene.
