Here is the story from Springfield, MO:
A Springfield man has been charged with felony pharmacy robbery after a clerk recognized him when he returned to get his prescription filled.
Douglas F. Manning, 31, is accused of being the masked robber who displayed a gun and demanded narcotics from a clerk at the Walgreens Pharmacy at 2681 W. Republic Road on July 30.
The clerk described the suspect as a white male wearing a tan jacket, gloves and a mask at the time. She also described his silver four-door passenger car, according to a news release.
A few days later Manning returned to the Walgreens to get a prescription filled, where the clerk recognized him and his vehicle.
She called police with a license plate number. Springfield police advised other local agencies that Manning was wanted, and the Republic Police Department arrested him at noon Tuesday, according to a news release.
Manning was charged with felony pharmacy robbery and is being held in Greene County Jail on $150,000 bond.
