A man wanted for robbing a CVS pharmacy in Fayetteville in December was arrested by Fayetteville authorities Thursday.
Michael MacConaugha Jr., 20, was charged with robbery and obstruction Thursday, according to Lt. Mike Whitlow with the Fayetteville Police Department.
According to Whitlow, Fayetteville detectives were able to develop information which led to MacConaugha’s arrest, but believe there may be more suspects involved.
MacConaugha is suspected of walking into the CVS on 480 N. Glynn St. around 6:45 p.m. on Dec. 24, 2013, wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, a white and blue baseball hat, camouflage pants and blue tennis shoes with pink laces.
According to Fayette Police officials MacConaugha approached the clerk with his hand in his right pocket, indicated he was holding a gun and demanded money from the register. He then fled on foot.
Agencies in other jurisdictions are also investigating whether MacConaugha is connected to other robberies, according to Whitlow.
