Columbia County authorities located and arrested an Evans man wanted for the armed robbery of an Evans pharmacy Friday morning.
William Wilcher Davis, 22, of Cape Cod Drive, was charged with armed robbery.
With a camouflauge net over his face, Davis went into the CVS on Furys Ferry Road at North Belair Road armed with a handgun at about 8 a.m. demanding Hydrocodone and Oxycontin, Columbia County sheriff's Capt. Steve Morris said. He jumped the pharmacy counter and left with a variety of narcotics.
Davis then ran through woods behind the store. Sheriff's office tracking dogs followed Davis' trail to a nearby church, where he got into a vehicle and left the area. Video surveillance footage from the church helped identify him, Morris said.
Deputies arrested Davis a few hours after the robbery at his home. They also found the narcotics, the handgun and the camouflauge he was wearing.
Nearby Riverside Middle School was locked down for a short time while deputies searched for Davis.
He is being held in the Columbia County Detention Center and bond has not yet been set. Those charged with armed robbery are typically held without bond subject to a bond hearing, Morris said.
