SARVER, Pa. (AP) — Police say a western Pennsylvania man he tried to rob a pharmacy of painkillers for his dying brother.

WPXI-TV ( ) reports 28-year-old Kenneth Miller, of Cabot, tried to rob the Colonial Pharmacy in nearby Sarver about 10 p.m.

According to a criminal complaint, Miller told a clerk he had a bomb, saying, "Sorry to do this, but I need painkillers for a sick relative."

When the clerk told Miller there were no pills left to steal, Miller left.

Police caught up to Miller a short time later and didn't find a bomb.

Cassie Miller, the suspect's wife, tells the station that her husband's brother has a life-threatening illness.

Calling Miller "a good man and a good father" she says, "If he did it, he did it out of desperation to help his family."
