December 12, 2018

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Two Indiana men have been charged in federal court with robbing Nebraska pharmacies for prescription drugs.

A news release Wednesday from federal prosecutors says 23-year-old Javonn Lewis, of Indianapolis, is accused of robbing a Lincoln pharmacy in March, and 19-year-old Michael White, of Muncie, Indiana, is accused of robbing an Omaha pharmacy in February. Both are charged with two counts: robbery and robbery involving controlled substances.

If convicted, each faces up to 20 years in prison on each count. There is no parole in the federal system.

The pair also face similar charges in Minnesota for pharmacy robberies in that state.
