SAN MARCOS – The San Marcos Police Department (SMPD) responded to a robbery reported at Walgreens on East Hopkins street on Thursday, January 6.
According to SMPD, 45-year-old Justin Jisha entered the store and threatened to use a weapon before walking out with a large number of narcotics.
“Our officers canvassed the area and located Jisha at the HEB next door where he admitted to robbing Walgreens and was taken into custody without incident,” SMPD said in a Facebook post. “Jisha told officers he did not have a weapon and a weapon was not located, but officers did recover the stolen narcotics.”
Jisha, of Canyon Lake, was arrested on charges of aggravated robbery and possession of a controlled substance.
