Princeton Shoppers Drug Mart went on lockdown Wednesday afternoon as a result of an armed robbery.

Just shortly after noon two males armed with pocketknives entered Shoppers Drug Mart and demanded that the pharmacists give them prescriptions drugs.

“Investigators have seized the in-store video which captured the robbery. Police have identified potential suspects and are actively looking for them. Considering the evidence that has mounted so far, these two individuals may even want to consider turning themselves into authorities at this time,” stated Cpl Dan Moskaluk.

The suspects, carrying various prescription drugs exited the store through the rear door and were last seen fleeing the scene on foot.

Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call Princeton RCMP at 250-295-6911 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477
