RICHMOND, Va. —  Four men have been charged in connection to a series of armed robberies at pharmacies in Virginia and North Carolina.

Locally, the men hit at least three stores.

The Walgreens at 20 Buford Rd in North Chesterfield was robbed on May 6. A Walgreens at 4845 S. Laburnum Ave in Henrico was robbed on May 12. That same day the CVS at 7048 Mechanicsville Turnpike in Hanover was robbed.

On seven occasions, masked and armed subjects entered 24-hour pharmacies in Virginia, and North Carolina, according to law enforcement.  The armed suspects were black men in dark clothing, who usually wore blue latex type gloves.

The suspects acquired money during the robberies, sometimes stole cellphones, and in a N.C. robbery, the suspects demanded Vicodin and Percocet.

Similarities were found in the surveillance footage of the Richmond and N.C. robberies.

Blue latex gloves were recovered in the parking lot after the May 12 robbery and put into evidence for processing. DNA was taken from a phone touched during a robbery.

On May 16, police conducted a traffic stop on an orange Plymouth Neon in Durham, N.C..

They observed a handgun and blue latex gloves and recovered a Walgreen’s bag full of money.

Four individuals have been identified.

Armand Devon Mullen, has been charged with one count of conspiracy to commit robbery, and one count of use of a firearm in a crime of violence.

Tyquan Demario Maccutcheon has been charged with one count of conspiracy to commit robbery, and one count of use of a firearm in a crime of violence.
