TULSA, Oklahoma -- Two recent pharmacy robberies in Tulsa have police looking for several suspects.

Tulsa Police say four black males armed with various handguns entered a Walgreens 91st and Sheridan on April 22nd at 5:45 a.m.

After finding the store's pharmacy area closed, they forced a clerk to give them cash from a register at the front of the store and ran outside to a waiting 1989 Chevrolet Caprice.
