Police in Montgomery County were searching for two armed bandits who held up a CVS Pharmacy at gunpoint early Monday in Bala Cynwyd.
Lower Merion Police Superintendent Michael McGrath said the crime occurred at 5:40 a.m. inside the pharmacy at 101 W. City Ave.
Employees told police that the two entered the store and ushered workers to an office in the back, then left the pharmacy with a substantial amount of cash. No one was hurt during the holdup, McGrath said.
Not long after the incident, Lower Merion police officers spotted a car that had been seen leaving the area, McGrath said. Officers pulled over the vehicle and, because the car was believed to be connected with an armed robbery, armed themselves with high-powered weapons.
