LYONS, Colo. — A woman suspected of robbing a pharmacy in Lyons turned herself in on Monday night, after being convinced by a neighbor to do so, the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office confirmed.

A sheriff’s office spokesperson said that their office was contacted by the Johnstown Police Department around 8 p.m. Monday. They were informed that Abigail Jo Johnson, 35, had turned herself in as the suspect in the Lyons pharmacy robbery from earlier in the day.

Johnson is accused of robbing the St. Vrain Pharmacy at 440 Main St. just before noon on Monday. A neighbor of Johnson’s reportedly saw a story on the robbery, which included surveillance photos of the suspect, contacted Johnson and convinced her to turn herself in.

Johnson has been arrested and charged with eight felony counts, including aggravated robbery of a controlled substance from a pharmacy, and two misdemeanor counts of child abuse because her 9-month-old child was allegedly in the car with her, and because there was a child in the pharmacy during the robbery.

The weapon allegedly used in the robbery has not been recovered, the sheriff’s office spokesperson said.
