MAKESAN, WI (WTAQ) - Police say a man who robbed a pharmacy in Wautoma, and killed himself in a standoff, also robbed also a drug store in Markesan a month-and-a-half before that. 

Markesan Police said they found DNA evidence that links 33-year-old Timothy Pawlacyk of rural Redgranite to an armed holdup at the Agnesian Pharmacy on June 27th. Officials said Pawlacyk held out a gun, demand the painkiller Oxycontin, and fled. 

Markesan Police consider the case closed, since the suspect killed himself on August 14th. That was when Pawlacyk robbed the CHN Pharmacy in Wautoma and got away with the same painkiller.

Authorities later found his vehicle, and gunshots were exchanged just before Pawlacyk ran into a nearby house. Officers found him dead there a few hours later.
