2 report being robbed of Xanax

Published: Wed, June 8, 2011 @ 12:06 a.m.

Staff report


Two men reported having their prescription of Xanax medication stolen from them Monday afternoon in separate incidents.

Xanax is an anti-anxiety drug similar to Valium.

An 18-year-old Howland man told police he was sitting in a car in the parking lot of USA Gas Mart, 858 N. Park Ave., at 1 p.m. when a man he knows walked up to the window of the car, put a gun to his head and told him to turn over a prescription of 90 Xanax pills. The suspect took the pills and fled in a teal Saturn.

A 24-year-old Champion man told Warren police he was robbed of his prescription of Xanax and $242 in cash at 7:30 p.m. Monday in the parking lot of the Austin Village Plaza, 2788 W. Market St.

The victim said he had gone for a ride in a car with an acquaintance, who stopped at the plaza and told him to get out of the car and meet two other males.

At that time, all of the males jumped the victim, kicked him in the face and took his pills and cash. Then all fled in two cars.

The victim said the males were from Champion, and one was driving a car with “Class of 2011” on it.

What does an 18 yr old and a 24 yr old need xanax for?

18 and 24 year olds can't suffer Generalized Anxiety Disorder? Or PTSD?

These thugs will most likely need Xanax when they get to their permanent home in the pen.

A description of the animals would be helpful.

What I find amusing is the fact that it seems as though their customers robbed them . How else would it be known that they had Xanax pills and why didn't they leave them at home ?

THE only reason for 90 Xanax , beyond serious anxiety issues, is re sale. Did both of these "kids" have the same doctor or free mental health agency?

Exactly Stan, the first one is sitting in a car in a gas station with 90 pills and someone he knows (regular customer) robs him. The second one is riding with a acquaintance (order taker) and is robbed by potential customers. Daaahhh!!!

Reminds me of a story sometime back that I read somewhere about some woman that flagged down the cops to report that she was trying to buy some crack and got ripped off.

Who needs the comics when you have the everyday happenings in good old Ytown!!!

When the one victim said that one car had a tag that read "class of 2011" did it mean "graduating class of 2011" or did it reflect the "class of people we have in 2011?" Just curious.

... a Nevada judge just gave out a life sentence for selling heroin to high school students...the kids worked as informants...

If these "victims" were informants you would not be reading the above story. Perhaps after arrests were made but not now.

I think Stan pegged this right on the head.
These clowns were set up to be robbed.
Why else would anyone know you had a full script and of what kind of medication.
These ripoffs were by no means a "lucky guess" or random acts.

Nobody unless they intend to sell would carry a full script of their medication with them unless they were on vacation and lets face it Gas mart and the Austin Villiage plaza parking lot aren't exactly vacation destinations.

I hope these fools are caught or better yet O.D.
There is nothing more dangerous than a benzo freak especially one who is attempting to drive a car.
2 weeks ago I was nearly killed by a woman wacked out of her mind on xanax.

I was on a motorcycle when she came left of center and almost hit me head on.
I had to ditch the bike to avoid getting hit.
About 100 yards down the road she rolled the car when she went off the opposite side of the road.

The stupid b...h had 2 young kids with her.
Thank God they weren't seriously hurt or worse.
According to the police and prosecuter this wasn't the first time she was caught driving while loaded on xanax

The Austintown Plaza is a vacation spot for out of state massage enthusiasts but soon that will change. They are building a new spa across the street. Thank goodness someone is doing some new building in Warren.

It depends. If my home wasn't secure I'd certainly take my medications with me as opposed to having them stolen at home. Luckily for me that isn't the case, however, I still carry 1-2 days worth with me just in case.
