A masked man robbed a Montgomery County pharmacy at gunpoint Thursday morning, getting away with prescription drugs from the pharmacy and causing several nearby schools to shelter in place during an ensuing manhunt.
The man robbed Clarksburg Pharmacy at 23213 Stringtown Road in Clarksburg at about 9:50 a.m., Montgomery County Police said.
He pointed the gun at two employees and had them get on the ground. Then he searched shelves and drawers, taking a variety of medicine, including pain killers.
"It's a very nice area so it's very weird to have somebody just come in and think that they can do something like that," one of the employees said.
