Florence police standoff ends peacefully

FLORENCE, Ala. (AP) - A man accused of robbing a Florence pharmacy at gunpoint and surrendering after a short standoff at his home is being held in the Lauderdale County Detention Center without bail.

Florence police detective David Bradley said 29-year-old Jason Dewayne Durham is accused of entering a Walgreens pharmacy about 8:30 a.m. Monday with a gun and demanding that employees give him drugs.

Two hours later, officers located Durham's van parked in the garage of his east Florence home.

Durham walked out and turned himself over to authorities just before 1 p.m.

Authorities said Durham took nearly 700 Oxycotin pills, which were hidden inside a wall.

More charges against Durham are pending.

A message left with Bradley was not immediately returned Tuesday morning.
