Coheed and Cambria Member Arrested For Attempted Armed Robbery With Fake Bomb
He's said to have entered a branch of the Waldgreens chain in Attleboro, Massachusetts, just before 1pm local time. It's reported he showed a pharmacist a message on his phone which claimed a bomb would be detonated if they didn't hand over an amount of prescription painkillers.
The thief left the premises with six bottles of pills and hired a cab. Police investigation suggested the vehicle in question had taken the suspect to the tour bus area of the Comcast Center in nearby Mansfield, where Coheed and Cambria were preparing to support Soundgarden. Police officers arrested him just minutes before the band were set to hit the stage. He was identified as the suspect by store staff, the cab driver and by CCTV footage. more on this story
