The scumbag you're referring to happens to be someones child. She's another victim of addictive prescription drug use in our country. Thank God no one was hurt. Maybe now she can get the help she needs or would you rather see here put in jail for the rest of her life and forgotten about and writing off and labeled a scumbag.

I personally think the store's manager and the police department are at fault for this THIRD robbery in ONE month. There should have been an officer or at the very least, a security guard, at that store from open until close. The guard for that store was not scheduled to come in until 2pm. Mind you, one of the other robberies occurred in the morning hours. I live in this area and frequent that CVS with my 5 year old. Not to mention the young staff members who have had to deal with this for the past month. Great job to the DOGS for finding the woman, but they should have brought them out one of the other TWO times.

Ben, the "scumbag" that the previous individual was referring to is an absolute monster. How can you use their addiction as an excuse? Millions of people are addicts and they seek help or they continue to wallow in their (self imposed) misery. This animal chose to threaten the lives of innocents by brandishing a gun with threats of violence. That sir, is not the fault of addiction. I'm glad this heathen is off the streets and hopefully will rot in a tax funded cell for her remaining days.

To the second and third and commenters: u guys got balls...this addict is lucky she didn't get caught in the act by an off duty's bullet. Go ahead and put someone's family along with innocent people in danger and pray it isn't near one. And if u liberals wanna play patty cakes with addiction excuses and rehab, why don't u blame the Dr's who go through 1 ink pen a week filling out scripts. Scumbag was the phrase used to describe the person, not the sentence you tool! Nothing was said against the rehab option or the perp being locked up for life! All in all, this is great police work, and you bashers need to appreciate a good thing when it's done...K9 tracks are no easy tasks!
