Howard County police have arrested and charged an Elkridge man in two armed robberies of a pharmacy where he was a customer, police said yesterday.

Charles E. Lawrence, 30, of the 8000 block of Keeton Road was seen on surveillance photos displaying a handgun before stealing prescription drugs Wednesday and April 10 from Feldman's Pharmacy on Lark Brown Road in Elkridge.

Store employees recognized Lawrence as a customer, and earlier surveillance photos show Lawrence making a purchase March 31.

Detectives arrested Lawrence late Thursday after serving a search warrant at his home.
