Woodland police have released surveillance photos of two men sought in the Friday afternoon robbery of a Walgreen’s pharmacy.

Police received numerous calls shortly after 3 p.m. regarding a theft at the Walgreens at 10 W. Main St. The callers reported that two men had jumped over the pharmacy counter and stolen prescription narcotics, according to a Police Department Facebook post.

The two men were described as African Americans wearing hooded sweatshirts. They reportedly jumped over the counter and ordered employees to unlock a cabinet containing prescription narcotic pills. They took several bottles and left the store on foot, heading east on Court Street.

Officers were investigating witness’s reports that the men got into a parked vehicle, possibly an older model white Cadillac, near Court Street and left in the vehicle.

No weapons were involved in the robbery and no one was hurt.

Police ask anyone with information regarding the case to call the Woodland Police Department’s dispatch line at 530-666-2411, or leave a message on the Investigations Division Tip-line at 530-661-7851.
