Painkiller junkies fuel rise in violent robberies - Press Herald

Sun, Nov 13, 2011
The robbery of Hibbard's store was one of at least seven holdups at drugstores in Maine in the month that began Aug. 29. Five occurred in Portland and South Portland, including two robberies of the CVS on Brighton Avenue in Portland. Another took place in Millinocket. Maine isn't the only state where the robberies have increased. Nationwide, armed robberies at pharmacies rose 81 percent from 2006 to 2010, according to the DEA. A total of 1.3 million pills, worth as much as $80 each on the street, were stolen in 686 robberies last year. OxyContin and other oxycodone pills are the most common target. The addiction epidemic has fueled another now-familiar crime in Maine: home invasions. While not counted and tracked as a distinct crime, home invasions are helping to fuel an overall increase in robberies. Police say that in most robberies, as well as burglaries, the criminals are looking for money to buy pills and other drugs, or for pills themselves. "The crimes of burglary, robbery and theft all went up in 2010 in Maine," said Steve McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety. "Nine and a half times out of ten, it's all driven by drug abuse." In Cumberland County, the number of burglaries in which prescription pills were among the items stolen doubled, from 14 in 2008 to 28 in 2009. "With so much out there, you can almost find prescription drugs in every house," said Sheriff Kevin Joyce. In Washington County, Sheriff Donnie Smith said he warns elderly residents to keep pill bottles away from their windows so they don't become robbery or burglary targets. Addicts even watch the obituaries to see where they might find unused cancer-pain medications, he said. Most drug-related crime is low-profile and nonviolent, such as forged checks, burglaries and thefts from family members. The people who get arrested on charges of prescription drug possession and trafficking don't always look like typical drug-crime suspects. Smith, the Washington County sheriff, said it's not unusual for the elderly to sell some of their pain medication for extra income. A 55-year-old Topsham woman was sentenced to jail in late September for stealing prescription sheets from the doctor's office in Bath where she was an office manager, according to the Maine Attorney General's Office. She forged oxycodone prescriptions for her son, who was sent to jail for selling the pills. Increasing violence Some of the drug-fueled crimes are becoming increasingly dangerous, police say. Home invasions, whether driven by drug addiction or something else, are especially violent. Eighty-one-year-old Grace Burton was stabbed to death during an apparent home invasion at her apartment in Farmington in June. Less than a week later, a middle-age woman was pistol-whipped by a masked intruder during a home invasion in Livermore Falls, police said. The cases are still under investiga...
