PHOENIX - Peoria police say numerous tips from the public after surveillance photos were released led to the arrest of an Oxycontin robber.

Everett Scrivner, 21, was arrested on Friday evening after he left a home in the area of Broadway and Gilbert roads in Gilbert as the passenger in a vehicle. Police pulled over the vehicle and took him into custody without incident.

On May 21, a suspect jumped over the counter at the Walgreens pharmacy near 90th and Peoria avenues and demanded the pharmacist give him all the Oxycontin on hand.

The pharmacist complied and the suspect jumped back over the counter and left the store.

Witnesses from the store told police the male suspect fled in the direction of a nearby mobile home community, Polynesian Village.

A resident told police he saw a man who fit the suspect's description jump over the wall and get into a car where another man was waiting for him in the driver's seat.

They fled in a tan late 90s Chevrolet Malibu.

No one was injured during the robbery. One witness believed the suspect had a handgun.

Scrivner was booked on charges of armed robbery, kidnapping and aggravated assault.
