ST. PETERSBURG — Police are searching for two men who robbed a 24-hour Walgreens pharmacy early Tuesday.

Once inside, one of the men jumped across the counter and began ransacking the shelves. The other man accosted three of the store clerks.

Police said one the suspects had a gun, but did not specify which suspect.

The men forced the employees to remove the cash drawers from the register before leaving on foot.

Police urge anyone with information to call at (727) 893-7780.
