CONYERS — The Conyers Police Department is asking for the public’s help as investigators continue to search for two men who robbed a local pharmaceutical company earlier this week.

CPD Officer Kim Lucas said the two suspects – described as black males, one of whom is about 5 feet, 6 inches tall and the other a little taller, around 6 feet tall — were wearing dark clothes and had masks covering their faces.

“The victims weren’t able to provide detailed descriptions because they were pretty scared,” Lucas said.

Around 1 a.m. Monday, the two men broke into Omnicare, a business located on Sigman Road, that provides pharmacy-related services to health care providers.

The suspects apparently broke into the business and forced two employees at gunpoint to get on the floor. One of the suspects then took the gun and went to the rear warehouse area where he forced another employee to fill several tote bags with pharmaceuticals, according to the CPD.

The suspect then ordered the third employee to go to the front of the building with the other two victims. The two suspects duct taped the victims’ hands behind their backs and their feet together, the incident report states.

One of the suspects took car keys from the first employee’s desk and stole her black Mazda RX-8. Police reported the Mazda as stolen and were able to locate it about three hours later in DeKalb County.

Lucas said said that anyone with information on the robbery is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 404-577-TIPS (8477) or visit www.crimestoppersatlanta.org.
