Police charged Cameron T. Murray, 24, of Turpin Drive, with second-degree robbery Saturday in connection with a Feb. 4 incident.
Officers were dispatched to the 400 block of Turpin Drive to investigate a theft, according to the police report. Upon arrival, the officers learned Murray had entered the residence and attempted to take a relative’s bottle of prescription Percocets, the report stated.
