JOHNSON CITY, TN (WJHL) – Police have two men in custody suspected of robbing a Walgreens pharmacy in north Johnson City Monday night.
The suspects were reportedly found hiding in a wooded acre across the street from the Walgreens, 4210 N. Roan St.
JCPD officers received the call about the armed robbery just before 8:30 p.m. Monday.
No one was injured.
Witnesses said a man walked into the store wearing a full set of hospital scrubs including the shirt, pants, hat, and surgical mask covering his nose and mouth.
Police said the man lifted his shirt to reveal a pistol in the waste band of his pants and then demanded prescription medication.
After getting some of the drugs, the man ran from the store.
Police said the two men taken into custody were being questioned by detectives at JCPD headquarters. It wasn’t clear if charges had been filed against the two suspects.
An investigator was not able to say if the robbery was connected to two other Walgreens robberies in Johnson City within the past month.
