TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- A Phoenix man suspected of robbing two Tempe pharmacies within the past week is now in custody.
 
Tempe police announced Tuesday that 23-year-old Angelo Moreno was being held in connection with robberies on Feb. 4 and 8.
 
Police say Moreno claims to be addicted to Xanax, a legal tranquilizer that can be prescribed for anxiety.
 
Authorities say a man entered a CVS pharmacy near Baseline Road and Priest Drive on Feb. 4 and demanded prescription medications.
 
Witnesses say the man handed a note to the employees, but when they didn't respond quickly, he jumped over the counter and the pharmacist gave him the pills.
 
On Feb. 8, police say a man made similar threats while robbing a Walgreens pharmacy near Baseline Road and Priest Drive.
 
No injuries were reported.

    Subway bedbug infestations on the rise
