BREWER — A Brewer man wanted in connection with a pair of pharmacy robberies late last month has been arrested.

Police say 35-year-old John Campbell was nabbed as he stepped off a bus Sunday.

Police tell the Bangor Daily News that Campbell fled soon after the Sept. 29 robberies by boarding a Greyhound bus to New York. Brewer police learned Sunday that Campbell had purchased a ticket to travel back to Bangor.

Police met the bus at about 11 a.m. and Campbell was arrested on two counts of robbery and one count of theft.

Campbell had been charged in connection with a Sept. 29 attempted robbery at the Rite Aid in Brewer and the robbery of the Hannaford grocery store pharmacy in Bangor a little more than an hour later.
