A Fairfax County man is facing charges in connection with a robbery and attempted robbery at two pharmacies in Sterling on Monday, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office.

Shawn C. McMahon, who lives in Great Falls, was identified as the suspect wanted in connection with the robberies during a traffic stop conducted by the Fairfax County Police Department. McMahon was charged last night with possession of a Schedule I narcotic and possession of drug paraphernalia. 

Following the 34-year-old's arrest in Fairfax County, detectives with the LCSO obtained warrants in Loudoun County for felony charges of robbery and attempted robbery. 

The charges stem from two cases in Loudoun County on Monday.

In the first case, the suspect entered the Rite Aid pharmacy located in the 46000 block of Cedar Lake Plaza in Sterling around 11 a.m. He handed the pharmacist a note that implied he had a gun. The note demanded prescription medication but the suspect left empty-handed.

Shortly after 12 p.m., the same suspect entered the CVS pharmacy located in the 400 block of Enterprise Street in Sterling. He again handed the pharmacist a note implying he had a gun and demanded prescription narcotic medications. The suspect was given prescription medication before fleeing. 

McMahon is currently being held at the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center on no bond.
