Police have made an arrest in a Safeway pharmacy robbery earlier this month.

The arrest came after the agency released several surveillance photos of the suspect. Tips coming into the agency identified him by name, according to Capt. Jeff Kuhns of Keizer Police. Follow-up from Det. Vaughan Edsall led to probable cause for arrest, Kuhns added.

Arrested was Patrick S. Baker, 35, for robbery and theft, both in the second degree. He was lodged at the Marion County Correctional Facility.

Police responded to the store, located at 4990 River Road N., at about 8:35 p.m.  Friday, April 13. Officers were told a man entered the business, went to the pharmacy window and demanded painkillers. He said he had a gun. After receiving the pills, he fled the store.
