RAW INTERVIEW: Pharmacy Robbery Suspect Talks About Drug Problem In Spokane

SPOKANE, Wash. -

Last Thursday, Spokane Police announced the arrest of Jacy Thomson and Phillip Powlus in a string of pharmacy robberies dating back to the beginning of the year. Days later, investigators made two more arrests including 23-year-old Dale Cusick for Second Degree Robbery.

Cusick says he's addicted to prescription painkillers but didn't have to rob any pharmacies because painkillers like oxycontin are easy to get through the mail.

A self professed drug dealer and addict, Cusick says he's been hooked on prescription painkillers he calls "oxys" for the last three years. He said he takes up to 40 pills a day and it's common for suppliers to mail or ship oxys from other states because prices for the pills are higher here than anywhere else.

Cusick says people he sells oxy's to don't think it's an addiction.

Even though he considers himself an addict and a dealer, he says he did not rob any pharmacies.

His arraignment is scheduled for February 11, 2014.

WARNING: The raw interview contains graphic language.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - Initiative-1639 has been the root of controversy ever since supporters began asking for signatures. It became even more complicated when the Washington Supreme Court overturned a Thurston County judges decision after the judge initially threw out over 300,000 signatures saying the petition didn't follow election law claiming it was unreadable.
