A second man has been arrested and charged in connection with an alleged armed robbery involving the theft of drugs from a pharmacy.
Police said a man brandishing a knife threatened staff at the pharmacy on King Street, Bathgate, on March 28, fleeing on foot with controlled drugs including morphine, pregabalin and diazepam.
Three days after the alleged robbery, a 25 year-old man was arrested and charged in connection with the incident.
On Saturday Police Scotland said another man, 43, has been arrested and will appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court.
Detective Sergeant Graham Garvie, of West Lothian CID, said: “Nobody was injured but this was a frightening experience for staff and customers alike.
“Extensive inquiries are ongoing to identify the man responsible, including reviewing CCTV from the area.”
He added: “I would also like to discourage anyone from purchasing any of the controlled drugs that have been described and would urge anyone who may be offered these to contact police immediately.”
