Roanoke police are looking for two men who stole prescription drugs from a pharmacy early Friday morning.
Police spokeswoman Aisha Johnson said officers responded to the CVS Pharmacy at Towers Shopping Center, in the 2000 block of Colonial Avenue, at 5:49 a.m. She said employees reported that two men had entered the store with a baseball bat and demanded prescription medications.
Johnson said the men obtained medications and fled. No one was hurt.
Police have not made any arrests in the case but are looking for the two men.
Both are described as white men, Johnson said.
The first man, who was carrying a white baseball bat, also carried a dark-colored bag with "A didas" written on it. He was about 5 feet 11 inches tall and weighed a bout 180 pounds, Johnson said. He was wearing a short-sleeved black T-shirt over a long-sleeved black shirt, dark jeans, black and white gloves, a black knit cap, sunglasses and a black and white bandanna over his face.
The second man was about 6-foot-1 and about 185 pounds, Johnson said. He had light brown hair and was wearing a short-sleeved black T-shirt over a long-sleeved maroon shirt, dark jeans, gloves and sunglasses. His face was covered with a dark cloth.
Anyone with information is asked to call Roanoke police at 853-5959 or Crime Line at 344-8500.
