Guilty plea in Md. robbery case

Prosecutors say a Baltimore man has pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit armed robbery of a Carroll County pharmacy last year.

Twenty-five-year-old Joseph Wagner entered the plea Monday in U.S. District Court. He will be sentenced on Oct. 22.

According to his plea agreement, Wagner and a conspirator went into the Finksburg Pharmacy on Sept. 30 and pointed a handgun at one of the employees.

The conspirator demanded Oxycontin, Xanax and Percocet. The pair fled with the medications in a car.

Troopers saw the car and stopped it. A loaded pistol and 75 pill bottles containing hundreds of pills of Percocet, Oxyontin and other medicines were found in the vehicle.

Charges against Wagner's conspirator are pending.
