Former Georgetown County deputy wanted in New Mexico



SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - A former South Carolina sheriff's lieutenant is suspected of robbing a Santa Fe, N.M., pharmacy at gunpoint and trying to rob a second pharmacy of the potent narcotic Oxycodone.



Police in Santa Fe say 43-year-old George William Smith is married to a Santa Fe prosecutor. They say Assistant District Attorney Dorie Biagianti-Smith called authorities and confronted her husband after recognizing him on a television news broadcast about the Monday and Tuesday robberies.



The Santa Fe New Mexican reports Smith fled the couple's home and remained a fugitive Thursday night.



District Attorney Angela Pacheco says the alleged crimes show prescription drug addiction can affect anyone.



A Rio Arriba County, N.M., Sheriff's Office spokesman says Smith listed South Carolina's Georgetown County Sheriff's Office as his previous employer.
