Authorities are investigating the armed robbery of drugs and money from the Yinger Pharmacy Shoppe, 1036 North Monroe St., in Monroe.

Employees and customers were held at gunpoint about 6 p.m. Friday while two men took a large amount of controlled substances and an undetermined amount of cash, the Monroe County Sheriff's Department said.

The men, one of whom was brandishing a handgun, fled on foot and headed southeast from the pharmacy. None of the employees or patrons was injured.
