      Drive-thru robbery at Walgreens

      Grand Traverse County deputies are searching for a man who robbed a Walgreens.

      Grand Traverse County deputies are searching for a man who robbed a Walgreens.

      It happened Friday just after 1pm on the Walgreens on S. Airport Airport near Garfield Avenue.

      Investigators say the man drove up to the drive thru and handed the clerk a note that said there was a bomb on the property and demanded the drugs Ritalin and Morphine.

      The clerk handed over the drugs and the suspect drove off in an unknown direction.

      Deputies say the suspect stole a car from a repair shop near Gordon Food Service before the robbery.

      The car was later found abandon in a parking lot a half a mile from the Walgreens.

      Investigators were processing the car Friday night looking for clues.

      The store was evacuated and deputies brought in a bomb sniffing dog to sweep the store. We're told no bomb was found.
