Man threatens Rite Aid pharmacist with bomb in Bristol, flees with 900 Oxycodone pills

BRISTOL – Kevin Groesser, 55, was arrested after police said he walked into the Rite Aid at 360 Summer Street and threatened to have a bomb in order to make off with more than 900 Oxycodone pills.

According to Bristol police, Groesser was wearing a bandanna and carrying what he said was a bomb when he walked into Rite Aid around 11 a.m. Sunday night.

After the pharmacist handed over the pills, Groesser allegedly jumped in a car that police said was driven by Patrick Flood, of Boscawen.

The State Police Explosive Unit was called to the scene and determined the package was not any sort of explosive device.

Police shut down Route 104 for two hours as they investigated the area.

Groesser was charged with armed robbery and Flood was charged with accomplice to commit armed robbery.
