COTTONWOOD HEIGHTS -- Two men robbed a Cottonwood Heights pharmacy and got away with Oxycontin.

Police say the men walked into the Rite Aid at about 2300 East and Fort Union Boulevard Saturday. Both had guns and bandanas or ski masks over their faces.

One of the men stood guard at the front entrance while the other demanded drugs from the pharmacy.

When they got what they were after, the pair drove off in a metallic red car.

Police tell us the same Rite Aid pharmacy was also robbed last month for the same drug. It's too early to tell, though, whether the same men were involved.
