NAPLES, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- It only took police ten minutes to make an arrest after a drug store in Naples was robbed.

The robber walked up to the pharmacy counter at the Rite Aid on Roosevelt Trail just before 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday and handed a note to the clerk demanding drugs.  Once his demands were met, he left without hurting anyone.

Police quickly caught up with a car as it drove away from the scene on Route 11 into Casco.  The driver was Anthony Mattia, 26, from Bridgton.  Police arrested him on charges of robbery and falsifying evidence.

Mattia is being held at Cumberland County Jail with bail set at $20,000.
