‘Drugstore Cowboy’ Author Arrested For Robbing Pharmacy….Again
May 28, 2010
James Fogle, the 73-year-old novelist, has been arrested several times, and spent time in prison in 1989, just as the movie was being released to audiences.
This is the second pharmacy robbery that police are sure of, and he was found with two large garbage cans full of drugs, which he had stolen alongside an unnamed convicted sex offender.
The two of them went into the pharmacy, tied the employees hands with plastic ties, and locked them into a room while they raided the medications.
When police arrived, they found Fogle dressed in a pink bandana as a mask, with a bb gun hidden in his pocket.
He has already spent 35 years behind bars for the other 14 felonies he has been convicted of in the past, but it looks like he will be spending most, if not the rest, of his life there as well. Especially since police believe they he may be responsible for a string of other robberies.
