A homeless man is behind bars, after police say he robbed the pharmacy at the West Medford Albertsons.

Just before 8 P.M. Wednesday night, police responded to the robbery.

Reports say Eli Williams approached the pharmacy clerk, and demanded specific drugs and money in a note.

He left the store with two bottles of oxycodone.

A witness was able to give a description of Williams, and officials found him minutes later near Reager street.

The man is now facing robbery in the second degree, and is being held in the Jackson County jail on $2 million bail.
