A man who robbed a Spokane pharmacy of OxyContin last May was sentenced recently to nearly three years in prison.
Robert K. Morris, 27, pleaded guilty to first-degree attempted robbery and was sentenced to 34 1/2 months in prison and ordered to pay $134 restitution.
Morris escaped the Walgreens at Division Street and Empire Avenue May 22 with just a small amount of pills; the stores have been keeping OxyContin in time-lock safes since fall 2009.
No charges were filed against Morris’ unsuspecting driver after the man passed a polygraph test. Morris was sentenced on Thursday and is in Spokane County Jail awaiting transport to state prison.
