Neighbor Convinces Woman To Turn Self In For Pharmacy Robbery

LYONS, Colo. (CBS4) – Police in Lyons now have the woman they think was behind a robbery at the St. Vrain Pharmacy.

According to police, a woman entered the St. Vrain Pharmacy located at 440 Main Street with a “large” handgun and committed the robbery just before 11 a.m. Monday.

Abigail Jo Johnson, 35, turned herself in to police after a neighbor saw surveillance photos on the Internet and convinced her to go police.

Johnson now faces charges on 10 counts, including aggravates robbery and child abuse because police say her 9-month-old was in the vehicle and there was a child in the pharmacy.

Schools in the Lyons and Allenspark area were placed on lockdown following the robbery as police searched for the suspect.
