A 29-year-old man was arrested Wednesday and charged with robbing a CVS Pharmacy in Crystal Lake at gunpoint on Sept. 2 of three bottles of oxycodone, authorities said.

Eric S. Sorenson, of the 100 block of Lake Court, Crystal Lake, is charged with felony armed robbery and theft of more than $500, police said.

Police said Sorenson used his father's semiautomatic handgun to rob the store, at 1305 Randall Road, and authorities executed a search warrant at his home on Wednesday. He faces a six-to 30-year prison term if convicted and is being held on $100,000 bail, meaning he must most $10,000 to be free while his case is pending.

He is next due in court on the armed robbery charges on Nov. 15.

Sorenson is scheduled to appear in McHenry County court in Woodstock on Friday on felony charges of possession of a firearm by a felon and aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, according to court records. He was charged by Crystal Lake police with these felonies on Oct. 21.

Crystal Lake police also charged Sorenson in June 2006 with felony theft over $300. He received 24 months specialized probation, 180 days in jail and was ordered to pay $2,300 in fines and restitution, according to court records.
