Four Teens Sought In Tulsa Drug Store Robbery
TULSA, OK -- Tulsa Police are looking for four suspects in connection with the robbery at a north Tulsa drug store Friday morning.
Police say four teens, ranging in age from 16 to 18 and all armed with pistols, robbed the Med-X Drug pharmacy of drugs and money.
The drug store is located in the 5200 block of North Peoria.
Police say four teenagers armed with semi-automatic handguns burst into the Med-X on North Peoria this morning.
One man pointed a gun at a clerk at the front of the store. Then goes behind the counter and forces that worker to open the register and take out all the cash.
Meanwhile, the other suspects go to the back to the pharmacy.
As customers are waiting for their prescriptions, the men force employees there to hand over drugs and more money.
No one was hurt, in what's becoming an increasing problem for pharmacies.
Coy Jenkins, Med X Drug, "These different controlled substances that they took this morning are sought after a lot of them are painkillers and people are trying to obtain these prescription meds."
The four teens then fled the store on foot.
