SOUTH SALT LAKE - A South Salt Lake Rite-Aid pharmacy was robbed for the second time in two months, and police believe it was by the same two men.

The pair, with bandannas over their faces, walked into the Rite-Aid at 635 E. 3300 South Monday, pulled out handguns and demanded money and drugs.

The clerk recognized the two immediately and locked herself in a back office while she called police.

One of the suspects hopped over the counter and grabbed some OxyContin from a drawer.

"Same as before: They took the drugs, exited the store, jumped over the chain-linked fence into the irrigation canal drainage and made their escape through a neighborhood," said South Salt Lake police Executive Officer Gary Keller.

Police believe these two men are responsible for a similar robbery on May 19 at the same pharmacy.
