Coheed and Cambria bassist Michael Todd was arrested for armed robbery in Attleboro, Mass., just minutes before the band was set to take the stage and support the reunited Soundgarden.

Apparently, Todd, 30, has a serious drug problem. The musician was arrested on Sunday, July 10th after holding up a Walgreen’s pharmacy at around 1:00PM. The bassist apparently entered the location, claiming he had a bomb and demanded bottles of Oxycontin. Authorities say he made off with six containers of the painkiller and took a cab to the gig at the Comcast Center. He was arrested before he even made it on stage, as police had tracked the vehicle.

Todd was charged with robbery and unlawful possession of prescription drugs. He is being held on $10,000 bail.

The band released the following terse statement on their website, addressing the matter and confirming that they will continue on without Todd.

“Michael Todd was arrested today on what we consider very serious charges and therefore he will not be finishing up the current tour. Wes Styles, longtime member of the Coheed family, will take on bass duties starting tomorrow for the remaining dates. No shows will be canceled.

“We are surprised to say the least and will address the situation with Michael after the tour. For now, we just want to have a great time out here and finish with some killer shows in Boston, Poughkeepsie, Quebec City and Halifax.”
