Authorities are looking for two men who are accused of robbing a pharmacy in Prairie Township.

Franklin County Sheriff's deputies responded to the Buckeye Pharmacy at 27 Norton Road on August 22. According to Central Ohio Crime Stoppers, two men had entered the pharmacy and one of them had a gun.

The suspects are then accused of bounding two pharmacy employees and a customer with zip ties and forcing them into a back room.

Authorities say the suspects forced another employee to open the pharmacy safe, from which they stole several thousand dollars of narcotic medications before fleeing the scene on foot.

Both suspects are described to be in their mid-20s. One of them is between 5-foot-10 and 6-feet tall, 140-160 pounds with a mustache, a goatee and a slim build. The other is described to be between 5-foot-8 and 5-foot-10, 180-200 pounds, with a short goatee/beard and a muscular build.

Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward for any information leading to the arrest and/or indictment of the people responsible for this crime.
