The robbery occurred about 11 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 13 at Walgreens Pharmacy, 1099 Garth Brooks Blvd.

The Yukon Police Department on Aug. 15 posted photos of the suspects on its social media sites. The images, taken from store surveillance video, show two individuals wearing hoodies, facemasks, hats, and sweatpants.

“Two suspects fled the scene with narcotics and were not located at that time,” according to a Yukon police incident report.

Yukon police detectives were contacted, and officers gathered statements from witnesses at the scene.

Investigators do not know whether either suspect was armed but no witnesses reported seeing any weapons, Yukon Assistant Police Chief John Brown said.

No suspect descriptions are available because both individuals were “covered up”, Brown added.

Anyone with information about the drug store robbery or suspects should contact Yukon Police Investigations at (405) 350-5520. Callers providing tips may remain anonymous.
