Delaware State Police are investigating a robbery at the Walgreens in Lewes just after 2 Friday morning.  Police say two suspects went inside and jumped over the counter while two others acted as lookouts.  One suspect who was armed with a gun ordered the pharmacist to unlock the safes as they took several bottles of oxycodone, liquid promethazine and codeine.  State Police followed the suspects by car and air into Maryland where they crashed into a fence and tried to run off on foot.  All four were arrested and a duffel bag with the stolen medications was recovered.  The 4 suspects – three from Washington, DC and one from Georgia remain in custody in Maryland.  Warrants have been obtained for robbery and conspiracy charges pending their extradition back to Delaware
