Based largely on citizen tips that were received following an initial news release, K.P.D. Detectives developed Christopher J. Fox as a suspect in the Sunday afternoon robbery of CVS Pharmacy. On May 4, 2015 at approximately 4:00 PM, Mr. Fox was arrested at his residence for Aggravated Robbery and transported to the Kingsport City Jail. He currently remains incarcerated awaiting arraignment. Some of the stolen property has been recovered. This incident remains under investigation.

As previously released:

On May 3, 2015 at approximately 3:25 PM, Kingsport Police Patrol Officers and Detectives responded to an armed robbery of CVS Pharmacy, located at 128 West Stone Drive in Kingsport. During the subsequent investigation they learned that an unknown white male suspect had entered the store and approached the pharmacy counter. He presented a note which claimed that he was armed and demanded specific prescription medication. The pharmacy personnel complied with the suspect’s demands, and he fled the scene with an undisclosed type and quantity of prescription medication.
