Mounties are looking for two men who robbed a Glenmore pharmacy Sunday night, and managed to get away with a load of narcotics.

“Two masked males entered the Pharmacy on Kane Road and forced the employee, under threat of violence, to give them prescription narcotics,” said Const. Steve Holmes, of the crime that happened just before 6 p.m., Oct. 29.

“The suspects took an undisclosed quantity of opiate narcotic analgesics including morphine, oxycodone and dilaudid—excessive amounts of which can cause serious injury or death.”

The men fled the store heading eastbound on foot and were seen getting into a dark mid size sedan.

“Police set up a perimeter and a police dog team followed a scent trail to where the suspects were seen getting into the vehicle,” Holmes said.

“No one was injured in the robbery.”

The suspects are both white, and one is in his mid 20s, the other in his mid 40s.

The younger suspect is around 5-foot-10 tall, 160 lbs with a thin build and fair skin.

He was wearing a black hoodie, blue jeans and dark running shoes.

The older suspect is about six-foot-one, medium heavy build with a greying beard and sharp blue/grey eyes.

He was wearing a black toque and a red flannel plaid jacket.

Police are asking anyone with information to contact Cst. Kevin Hamilton, of the Kelowna RCMP General Investigation Services, at 250-762-3300 or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or visit www.crimestoppers.net to report information about this crime.
