Derek Wood Sentenced For Robbing Grocery Store Pharmacy

Casper Police Department

A Sheridan man and former firefighter and EMT has been sentenced for robbing a Casper pharmacy.

Twenty-eight year old Derek Wood was sentenced to two-and-one-half to five years in prison after he pleaded guilty to one charge of robbery.

Casper Police say in November, Wood approached the pharmacy at the Albertson’s Grocery Store on East Second Street, and asked for some prescription drugs.

Employees told investigators that they saw what they believed to be a gun, and gave him the prescription.

They suspected it was Wood, because he had frequented the pharmacy for other prescriptions.

Wood was spotted in the grocery store one week later and when questioned by police, he admitted to the incident, and said he used an airsoft handgun at the time.

At his sentencing, prosecutors mentioned that Wood has had addiction issues with controlled substances, and it may have started as early as when he sustained an injury, when he was 17 years old.
