Spider Man arrested in pharmacy robbery


A man believed to be the Spider Man suspect was arrested early this morning, on Thursday, June 28 around 2 a.m. During the initial investigation, police had a description of a possible vehicle used in the robbery. After receiving a tip from a concerned citizen, the vehicle was located and a traffic stop was made at Burke Centre Parkway and Burke Lake Road.
Dave Edward Wolfe, Jr., 25, of 9775 High Water Court in Burke, was arrested and charged with robbery. He was taken to the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center.
Burke reportedly was wearing a red Spider Man mask when he allegedly entered the Giant Store at 9550 Burke Road and announced a robbery. This occurred on Monday, June 25 around 3 p.m. The suspect proceeded to the rear of the store to the pharmacy, waited for one pharmacist to leave then sneaked behind the counter. He implied a weapon and ordered the second pharmacist, a 39-year-old Clifton woman, to give him oxycontin. The victim opened the safe and the suspect grabbed an undisclosed amount of pills. The suspect fled on foot, still donning the Spider Man mask. There were no injuries.
