The suspect in a robbery at a Security Walgreens on December 6 has been arrested Tuesday in Pueblo.

The suspect, 19-year-old Joseph Watson, is being held on $50,000 at the Pueblo County Jail. He's facing charges of Aggravated Robbery.

The robbery happened a little before 8 p.m. at the Walgreens at 280 Main St. in Security. Deputies say that's where Watson walked around the store for a bit, then went to the pharmacy, said he had a gun, and demanded Oxycontin.

Deputies say the robber did get away with some drugs, and they think he took off in a vehicle.

The El Paso County Sheriff's Office says the suspect was identified thanks to a Crime Stopper tip.
