A robbery at a Walgreens pharmacy turned into a pursuit Wednesday near Central Avenue and Bell Road.
A man armed with a gun walked into the pharmacy demanding oxycodone and fled the scene with the drugs.
A pursuit ensued and the suspect was seen driving a silver Volkswagen Jetta. He refused to pull over for the police, but officers caught up with him in a nearby neighborhood.
Police found him hiding in a shed behind a home near 4th Drive and Utopia Avenue with a handgun and a knife.
Before being taken into custody, the suspect was bitten by a police K-9, but is expected to be okay.
Authorities did not release the man's name.
