Police say suspect in pharmacy robbery arrested

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – One of the suspects wanted in a dangerous string of pharmacy robberies, is locked up. Federal authorities say they nabbed 23-year-old Josephine Duran Thursday night. She’s part of a criminal network of people who robbed pharmacies to get pain killers.

Earlier this week law enforcement agencies announced their investigation into 26 robberies that date back to last year. Thieves took 68,000 pills worth $1.4 million. Blake Gallardo and Valentin Garcia are two suspects still on the run.
