Ran across this on the Fairfax Underground site. Looks like the webslinger needed a fix, and was probably faking a weapon.
Masked Man Robs Burke Pharmacy
A man wearing a red Spider Man mask entered the Giant Store at 9550 Burke Road and announced a robbery. This occurred on Monday, June 25 around 3 p.m. The suspect proceeded to the rear of the store to the pharmacy, waited for one pharmacist to leave then sneaked behind the counter. He implied a weapon and ordered the second pharmacist, a 39-year-old Clifton woman, to give him oxycontin. The victim opened the safe and the suspect grabbed an undisclosed amount of pills. The suspect fled on foot, still donning the Spider Man mask. There were no injuries.
The suspect was described as being about 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighed about 180 pounds. He wore a blue sweat shirt and blue shorts.

Since the "what would you do if you were there" discussions always seem to be lively, I thought this one was pretty funny. But poor M.J.'s not gonna be happy...
