(Farmington-AP) -- A man originally accused of robbing six northern Utah pharmacies of the painkiller OxyContin has pleaded guilty to two counts of robbery.

John Paul Lindeman, 37, of Layton entered the pleas yesterday in second District Court in Farmington and prosecutors dropped two other charges.

Sentencing was set for May 22nd.

Lindeman still faces two counts of aggravated robbery in two October robberies in Ogden and Roy. A change of plea hearing is set for Wednesday in Ogden.

Several area pharmacies stopped carrying the painkiller after repeated robberies but have since resumed sales.
