According to police, on Tuesday at about 6:52 p.m. a man entered the Alberston's pharmacy on Southwest Boones Ferry Road in Wilsonville. He produced a handgun and demanded drugs from behind the counter. He then fled the store.

The Wilsonville Police Department was notified and officers responded. 

Police said they immediately recognized that the details that matched two previous robberies, one on Nov. 29 and the other on Dec. 30. According to police, officers had spent countless hours following up on tips and clues from the previous robberies and were ready to track the suspect as soon as they realized he was the suspect they were looking for. Deputies were able to use clues gathered from those robberies as well as clues from Tuesday’s incident to track the man to the Madison Boulder Creek Apartments in Wilsonville. 

Officers surrounded the apartment and with the assistance of the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office and the Canby Police Department they called Michael Laseur, 33, and arrested him without incident.  Laseur was booked into the Clackamas County Jail on suspicion of three counts of first-degree robbery.
