A man is behind bars, accused of robbing a local CVS pharmacy.

The Knox County Sheriff's Office arrested 23-year-old Christopher James Field Tuesday night.

Deputies say Field pulled up to the drive-thru window at the CVS on East Emory Road in North Knox County Tuesday afternoon and handed the pharmacist a note. The note demanded medication and threatened to kill those in the pharmacy if they didn't give it to him. After getting the medicine, Field fled.

Deputies later found him at a home on Foust Hollow Road and took him into custody.

Now, the sheriff's office is looking for the man who lives at that home. 24-year-old Cody Justin Beeler is wanted for failure to obey court orders.

Anyone with information is asked to call the KCSO Major Crimes Unit at (865) 215-2243.
