CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) -

A Richmond man is accused of robbing a Walgreens pharmacy in Bon Air to get pills over the weekend.

Steven Velazquez, 53, robbed the store on Buford Road around 4 a.m. on Saturday, according to police. Detectives say he told the pharmacist he was armed and demanded pills.

Police were able to use surveillance images to figure out he was driving a silver station wagon, which they later found in a parking lot in the 6500 block of Midlothian Turnpike. Police say they arrested Velazquez when he came back to his car. 

Velazquez is charged with robbery, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony and possession of a Schedule I/II controlled substance.
