Arrest made in Oakfield Pharmacy robbery

post by Howard B. Owens in crime, Oakfield

A 24-year-old Oakfield woman is being held on $25,000 bail after being accused of robbing a pharmacy this afternoon.

Elizabeth Marie Hamby, 24, of Forest Avenue, is charged with first-degree robbery as well as second-degree robbery.

Hamby is the person initially taken into custody this afternoon after local law enforcement was notified of the robbery.

She reportedly fled from the pharmacy on Main Street in Oakfield to a house less than a block away on Forest Avenue.

A witness saw her leave and go to that location.

A clerk at the pharmacy reportedly suffered minor fingernail cuts in a scuffle with the suspect.

Hamby allegedly made off with $400.

Investigators say Hamby entered the pharmacy and appeared to be shopping for a while and then approached the clerk, displaying what appeared to be a pistol and a knife. She allegedly demanded money.

Deputies and troopers quickly responded to the scene and surrounded the house where the suspect was believed to be hiding.

She's scheduled to appear in Town of Oakfield Court again at 2 p.m., Nov. 26.

Robbery suspect in custody, but investigators working to determine if she's the right person

post by Howard B. Owens in crime, Oakfield

Investigators have a suspect in custody from an armed robbery at the pharmacy on Main Street in Oakfield today, but haven't ruled out the possibility of a different person being involved, said Chief Deputy Gordon Dibble.

At about 12:30 a woman entered the pharmacy and displayed what appeared to be a handgun and demanded cash, according to Dibble.

After the robbery, she was seen fleeing down Forest Avenue, where she entered a residence.

Deputies and troopers surrounded the house, K-9 Destro responded, and a short time later, a woman was taken into custody.

She is being questioned by investigators, but Dibble said this afternoon that they hadn't ruled out the possibility that she's not the woman who robbed the pharmacy.

The house was being searched and the woman and other people were being questioned, Dibble said.

There was a tussle during the robbery and a female employee sustained fingernail scratches on the back of her neck, Dibble said.

The woman who robbed the pharmacy was wearing a hoodie and had what appeared to be an ace bandage covering a portion of her face.
