Nurse Robs South Loop Pharmacy Twice, Arrested on 3rd Attempt

A 58-year-old nurse robbed the same South Loop Osco twice before she was arrested making a third attempt on Monday, prosecutors said. Ernelle Oliver, of south suburban Richton Park, was arrested at the Jewel-Osco at 1340 S. Canal. Prosecutors say Oliver admitted to robbing the same store two weeks earlier, as well as on Jan. 27. Each time, Oliver made off with hundreds of tablets of the prescription antidepressant alprazolam, also known by the brand name Xanax, the Chicago Sun-Times is reporting. In the January robbery, Oliver went to the pharmacy counter holding an unidentified object and told the pharmacist, “Give me your Xanax and don’t push any buttons, or I will shoot you,” according to a Chicago Police report.
