WATERVILLE — A woman was robbed of prescription drugs by a masked gunman Friday in her trailer.
Sgt. Joseph Shepherd said a 39-year-old woman, whom he wouldn’t name, was alone in her Nicole Drive mobile home at about 7:30 p.m. and heard a noise coming from her front door. When she investigated the source of the sound, she discovered a man in her living room holding a handgun and wearing a bandana over his face.
“He pointed the gun at her and demanded prescription medications,” Shepherd said.
The woman complied and handed over several different medications.
“Then he told her to turn around, and he left the home and ran down the street,” he said.
The robbery lasted about three minutes, and no one was injured. Shepherd wouldn’t disclose the types or amounts of drugs that were stolen.
The robbery is still under investigation, but it is believed to be an isolated event, he said.
