Wigged OxyContin robber gets 13 months

A man who donned a black wig to rob two Spokane pharmacies of OxyContin last year donned a jail jumpsuit today after he was sentenced to about a year in prison.

Dustin J. Rockstrom, 26, was taken into custody after pleading guilty to two counts of second-degree robbery. He was sentenced to 13 months in prison and ordered to seek drug addiction treatment.

Rockstrom wore a black wig (pictured above) when he robbed the Shopko at 4515 S. Regal St on Aug. 24, then the Rite Aid across the street on Sept. 5.

Police found that wig when they raided in apartment rented by Rockstrom’s alleged getaway driver, Aaron M. Weyrauch, 28. Weyrauch is in jail awaiting trial. Rockstrom had been out on bond.

Weyrauch’s former roommate, Dalen J. McMillon, 27, is wanted on drug dealing charges connected to an OxyContin ring police believe was operating out of their apartment at 903 S. Adams.

Anyone with information on McMillon’s location is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
