January 10, 2011 (El Cajon) – Jodi Lynne Boyd, 35, is in custody after attempting to steal narcotic pain medication from the CVS Pharmacy at 2760 Fletcher Parkway in El Cajon. According to El Cajon Police, the suspect simulated a handgun and demanded oxycontin at the pharmacy counter. But the attempted robbery was foiled by the actions of two store employees.
A pharmacy employee picked up the phone and called the store manager. The suspect jumped over the counter and took the phone, then later fled the store without the medication—and with the manager in pursuit. At a Jack-in-the-Box across the parking lot, the suspect discarded some clothing but was arrested a short time later when El Cajon Police officers arrived in response to a 911 call.
Boyd was booked into San Diego County Jail and charged with robbery.
