PRESTON, Md. - Eric Trice is behind bars after allegedly robbing the Preston Pharmacy. Caroline County Sheriff's Deputies received reports of an armed robbery in progress just before 7:00 PM Tuesday.

Upon arrival they say the pharmacist came out of the building towards them, with his hands bound to a piece of the store's counter by electrical tape. According the report, the pharmacist told them the suspect was still inside, and armed with a gun. Authorities searched the building with the help of the Denton Police Department's K-9 Unit. Thirty-one-year-old Trice was found inside the basement, where he was apprehended. An investigation determined that the Preston man had come into the establishment with the intention of stealing medication.

He now faces several charges including armed robbery, robbery, theft +$1,000, 2nd degree assault, reckless endangerment and false imprisonment. He is being held on $500,000 bond.
