A Walgreens pharmacy in St. Louis Park was robbed Monday by two thieves wearing surgical masks.

Saint Louis Park Police Department reports that the robbery happened around 6:30 p.m. at the Walgreens located at 7200 Cedar Lake Road, with the thieves getting away with drugs from the pharmacy. 

Police say one of the suspects had a bag and gave worker behind the counter a note that implied he had a weapon, although a weapon was not positively identified. The other suspect then jumped the counter and stole an unknown amount of medication. 

The males then fled westbound on Cedar Lake Road, likely leaving the scene in a vehicle, police said. 

The note was left at the scene and is being examined by the Hennepin County Crime Lab. 

Anyone with information that could help lead to an arrest is asked to call St. Louis Park police at 952-924-2600.
