Man held in drug robbery after tip from church pastor

Wed., March 10, 2010

A church pastor helped detectives identify a suspect in a robbery Monday at a North Idaho pharmacy.

Egan B. Logan IV, 39, of Twin Lakes, was arrested Tuesday on charges of robbery and possession of a controlled substance.

Detectives say he demanded anxiety medicine from the Hayden Walgreens about 8:45 p.m. Monday, then left $300 on the counter before fleeing with the drug. The 100 Adderall pills were valued at $550, according to the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Department.

The pharmacist told detectives the robber said “I guess I will have to rob you” when she said he needed a prescription, according to the Sheriff’s Department.

A local pastor called the Sheriff’s Department Tuesday and said she’d had contact with a possible suspect. Detectives met Logan at the Rathdrum Police Department, where he reportedly admitted to the robbery.

He’s in custody at the Kootenai County Jail and is due in court today.
