Mike’s Pharmacy Armed Robbery
01/21/2015 @ 1:25 p.m.

On January 21st, 2015 a person came into Mike’s Pharmacy in Tracy City armed with a handgun and demanded drugs from the employees of the pharmacy. The robber was disguised by wearing extra clothes to make them look larger than normal and was wearing a stocking over their face. The robber was specific in the request for drugs and took 500 Xanax and 200 Oxycodone at gunpoint. The robber then left out the rear entrance to the building.IMG_2289

During the immediate investigation, the clothes worn by the robber were discovered behind a nearby church. These clothes were sent to the TBI for DNA analysis.

On August 8th 2015 a pharmacy was robbed at gunpoint in Manchester, Tennessee and the suspect was caught still on the property and arrested. That person was Rhonda Kay Davis from Grundy County. Tracy City Police Chief Wilder went to Manchester to interview the suspect and while there, noticed similarities between that person and his suspect in the Tracy City Robbery.

Chief Wilder obtained DNA swabs from the suspect and sent those to TBI as well. The DNA was a positive match to Rhonda Davis.

“This has been a long investigation and a lot of man hours and hard work has been done by my officers to bring this to an end. I feel our town is now a safer place knowing this person is off the street. I would like to thank all the agencies that assisted in our effort and recognize my officers for their diligent work.”

Rhonda Davis is currently being held in the Grundy County Jail without a bond. Her arraignment is set for September 14th.
