SANFORD — A Biddeford woman faces robbery charges after she tried to steal prescription painkillers from CVS on Main Street in Sanford on Sunday.

Police say Kimberly Vigue, 23, was wearing heavy clothing, a hood, baseball cap and gloves when she demanded Oxycontin at 4 p.m. She said she had a gun and threatened to shoot workers, police said.

She was given medicine and left the store, but as she did, she was tackled by Springvale resident William Leonard who was outside the store with his wife.

The couple held the robber until police arrived. Police found no weapon.

Vigue is charged with robbery and violating bail conditions from a previous arrest. Officers took her to York County Jail where she is being held on $25,000 bail.
