TULSA, OK -- A Tulsa Walgreens manager was taken to a local hospital after experiencing possible heart attack symptoms in an armed robbery overnight Thursday.

The Walgreens at 31st and Garnett was robbed by three men wearing red bandanas over their faces at about 3:45 a.m. The men displayed guns and forced the manager to open the store safe. They left with Xanax, Oxycotin and an undisclosed amount of money.

A fourth man was seen on store video outside the store, apparently acting as a look out. The four men walked from the area, and police believe they had a car parked nearby.

The manager, who has a heart condition and was experiencing shortness of breath, was transported to EMSA for chest pains.

Police are searching for the four men and say the men may also be responsible for another burglary Thursday morning.
