MOORESVILLE, Ind. – Police in Morgan County arrested three suspects in connection with a series of recent pharmacy robberies.

On Saturday, Aug. 27, Mooresville police officers arrived at Walgreens, 115 Fields St., in response to a reported robbery. The suspect had already left when police got there.

Mooresville detectives were already out investigating another robbery and quickly arrived at the location to interview witnesses and gather surveillance video. Surveillance footage showed a man enter the store, talk to the cashier and then bring an item to the checkout. He gave the cashier a note saying he had a gun and handed over a list of prescription drugs for the cashier to retrieve.

The cashier was ordered to contact her manager; the cashier, manager and suspect all approached the pharmacist, who complied with the suspect’s demands and put the medications inside a bag. The man then left.

Detectives had investigated a Walgreens robbery from June 21, 2016, that was similar in nature. Police prepared a photo lineup and identified the suspect.

On Thursday, Morgan County sheriff’s deputies were at the Ricker’s gas station on Bridge Street when someone approached them about a suspicious car on Conduitt Drive. Deputies went to check on the vehicle and then stopped it. After identifying the men inside, they realized one of them was suspected in the Walgreens robberies.

Evidence found inside the car connected the suspects to the pharmacy robberies, police said. Investigators also believe the three men were getting ready to commit another robbery.

All three were arrested; police identified them as Ryan Curlin; 23; Devonte Harris, 23; and Donte Harris, 23. The suspects are all from Indianapolis.
