A Denver man who admitted to robbing Anderson’s Pharmacy Aug. 2 was arrested for attempting to rob the business again the following day.

Daniel J. Greco, 27, was charged with felony counts robbery, criminal attempt to commit robbery and theft by unlawful taking for both incidents at 334 Main St., Denver, at 4:26 p.m. Aug. 2 and 3:10 p.m. Aug. 3, police said.

East Cocalico Township police were dispatched to the pharmacy for both incidents, during which Greco demanded prescription medication, specifically Xanax and Vyvance.

Covering his face with a bandanna and displaying an Airsoft-style handgun during the first robbery, Greco made off with $3,332.43 in meds, according to police. The replica handgun was not recovered.

The pharmacy owner confronted Greco the second time, causing him to flee without taking anything, police said.

Witnesses reportedly saw Greco leave and notified police, who located him a short time later in an alley behind the business.

He was identified by surveillance photos and evidence located on his person, police said.

Greco is on probation in Lancaster County, police said. He was remanded to Lancaster County Prison and, as of Aug. 4, awaits a preliminary hearing before Magisterial District Judge Nancy G. Hamill.
