Coheed and Cambria's Michael Todd arrested in pharmacy robbery before show
(CBS/WBZ/AP) ATTLEBORO, Mass. - Michael Todd, the bassist for rock band Coheed and Cambria, was arrested and charged with robbing a Massachusetts pharmacy of prescription painkillers just hours before his band played a show.
Investigators in Attleboro, about 40 miles south of Boston, said Todd entered the Walgreen's pharmacy after 1 p.m. on Sunday and showed the pharmacist a note on his phone saying he had a bomb.
Police say the 30-year-old, of Anaheim, Calif., then made off with six bottles of Oxycontin and fled in a cab headed to the Comcast Center in Mansfield, where his band was to open for Soundgarden that night.
According to CBS station WBZ, he was arrested at the concert hall before the show, and the band played without him.
"That is kind of shocking," a Coheed fan said to the station. "I didn't think any of them were like that."
Todd is scheduled to be arraigned Monday in Attleboro District Court.
According to the Coheed and Cambria's website, the band says their tour will continue.
