A 23-year-old man from Maine faces up to 20 years in prison after pleading guilty to robbing a pharmacy.

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) _ The U.S. attorney's office said Nicholas Alexander entered his plea Tuesday in federal court in Portland.

Police said Alexander and others robbed a Walgreens pharmacy in Bath in June. During the robbery, Alexander handed a pharmacist a note demanding oxycodone tablets or he'd "blow his brains out."

Alexander was later arrested at a motel in Wiscasset with 600 oxycodone tablets. He told police he'd used some and sold others.

Another 23-year-old man from Dresden was also charged.
