Serial Pharmacy Robber Arrested

A man suspected of armed robberies at pharmacies from Reno to the Bay Area over the last few months, including Placer County, has been arrested in the Lake Tahoe area. That was just a few minutes after 48-year-old Peter Terry, of Reno, allegedly held up the same pharmacy in Kings Beach for a third time. Placer County Sheriff’s Sergeant Dave Hunt says Terry was addicted to painkillers.
