A little more than an hour after allegedly robbing a pharmacy in North Spokane for prescription medication, a man called police to turn himself in.

Eric D. Bordner, 23, was arrested Sunday night on suspicion of first-degree robbery.

Police received the report of armed robbery at the Walgreen’s pharmacy at 12 E. Empire Ave., around 9:50 p.m. on Sunday, a news release from the police department said.

Witnesses told police a white man entered the store, displayed a gun, demanded prescription medication, then ran from the store. Police attempted to track the robber with a dog, but could not find him, the release said.

Shortly after 11 p.m., police received a call from a man who said he had robbed the pharmacy. Police went to the address he gave them, 4300 E. Mission Ave., and arrested Bordner there, the release said.

Police also found the gun believed to be used in the robbery. The gun was a “realistic-looking airsoft handgun,” the release said.

Bordner was expected to appear in court Monday afternoon.
