Ex-Coheed and Cambria bass player Michael Todd has been indicted by a Bristol County grand jury for allegedly robbing narcotics from a pharmacy right before a concert last month in Mansfield, Mass., where the band was opening for Soundgarden.

The Sun Chronicle reports that Todd, 30, is up for charges of “armed robbery and possession of narcotic painkillers” connected to the July 10 robbery at Walgreens on Pleasant Street. His arraignment is set for Sept. 8 in Fall River Superior Court, Gregg Miliote, according to Bristol County District Attorney Sam Sutter.

As for the incident, Todd allegedly walked into drug store and told workers he had a bomb and would blow up the store unless they gave him pain pills. Todd left with six bottles of the pain pill and was arrested on the band’s tour bus, which was parked backstage, according to police.

He later pleaded innocent in Attleboro District Court, but a prosecutor said he purportedly confessed to the robbery before requesting a lawyer. Todd was kicked out of the band after the incident.
