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.

    Nancy- How does Subutex compare to traditional Methadone treatments? More/ less effective? Reason I ask is I heard there's a problem w/ Methadone addiction now- something I didn't hear about 20 years ago when my friend was taking it.

    Unless he plans on selling them, he's not going to get much out of them. The pharmaceutical company changed the formulation rendering the pill abuse-proof. Most of the people who abuse Oxy either snort, inject or chew it. Before they changed it, you just had to turn the pill into a powder. The new ones now gel up so unless you want to put thick sticky slime up your nose, in your veins, or break a tooth, you're pretty much out of luck.

    Any chance we could get the mugshot as one of the photos featured in the story? It's visible on the main page as the main picture for the story, but it doesn't show up anywhere else in the story or in the video, and can't see the picture at all on the front page since it's less than 1" big.

    Do you or someone you know need help with OxyContin or other opiate addiction? This life-threatening medical condition can now be treated in the privacy of a certified physician's office with prescription medication called buprenorphine (Suboxone/Subutex). Bupe is abuse resistant and has a ceiling to its effects making accidental fatal overdoses unlikely. It also blocks other opioids for days, and is not euphoric to people tolerant to opioids. It has enough opioid effect to stop cravings and withdrawal allowing the patient and their family to make the necessary changes that will translate to sustained addiction remission. is a free service from the non-profit organization - National Alliance of Advocates for Buprenorphine Treatment ( it is a confidential way to find doctors certified to treat opioid addiction in their office.
