Johnson County Sheriff's deputies arrested a 36-year old man in connection with Tuesday's robbery of the Solon Drug Pharmacy.

Deputies say they arrested Gregory J. Engrav several hours after he tried to steal narcotics from the pharmacy.

Sheriff Lonny Pulkrabek says Engrav walked into the pharmacy around 2:30 Tuesday afternoon with his face partially masked and holding a knife.  Pulkrabek says Engrav demanded prescription medications.

Pulkrabek says a witness managed to get the license plate number of the car Engrav used to get away from the scene.  A clerk identified Engrav when deputies showed a picture of Engrav.

Engrav is charged with first degree robbery and was booked into the Johnson County Jail.

He's expected to be arraigned Wednesday.
