TOPSHAM — Topsham police have arrested a woman say they say is responsible for a pair of pharmacy robberies in town earlier this month.

Police say 29-year-old Sarah Wilson, with a last known address of Richmond, was arrested last week and charged with two counts of robbery in connection with July 18 robberies at the Rite-Aid and Hannaford pharmacies.

Police say the suspect entered the drug stores within minutes of each other and passed the pharmacists a note demanding prescription painkillers.

The note made reference to another person with a gun. No weapon was displayed and police did not recover a weapon or see a weapon displayed on surveillance footage.

The Times Record reports that police tracked down Wilson with the help of surveillance video. She was held on $100,000 bail.
