Whitehorse RCMP have arrested and charged an Ontario man in connection with a March 3 robbery at the Medicine Chest Pharmacy on Ogilvie Street.

Christopher John Miller, 33, appeared in court March 9.

He was charged with one count of robbery.

Whitehorse RCMP say a tip from the public around 3 p.m. on March 8 led them to believe Miller was about to leave the territory later that afternoon.

They arrested Miller at Erik Nielsen Whitehorse International Airport.

Police had been looking for a man suspected of robbing the downtown pharmacy after a man approached a pharmacy employee and demanded pharmaceuticals March 3.

The man told the employee that it was a robbery and brandished a weapon from his coat.

RCMP say the suspect left with a bottle of opioid pain medication.
