AUGUSTA — Police are searching for two men who robbed a CVS pharmacy of prescription drugs Monday night.

Nobody was hurt during the robbery, which happened about 6:40 p.m. at the CVS at 2 Stone St., off Cony Circle, said Augusta Police Detective Sgt. Matthew Clark.

The two white men, believed to be in their late teens or early 20s, got away with an undisclosed amount of prescription pills, Clark said.

Clark said neither of them showed a weapon.

A radio bulletin broadcast to area police Tuesday morning said the robbers handed a note to a store technician demanding Oxycontin. The men, who indicated they had a gun, got away with a large amount of medication, according to the bulletin.

Clark wouldn’t confirm the details from the radio bulletin, including whether the men claimed to have a weapon or the type or amount of medication that was taken.

Maine State Police were called to assist with a tracking dog, but the robbers could not be found, Clark said.

One of the robbers was wearing a red knit hat, a dark hooded sweatshirt and dark-colored jeans, Clark said. The second robber was dressed in a dark knit hat, dark hooded sweatshirt, sunglasses and dark pants.

Augusta police asked anyone with information about the robbery to call Detective Brian Wastella at 623-2370, ext. 3420.
