Laurel County Men Charged With Robbing Pharmacy

Two men are under arrest after an armed robbery at a Laurel County pharmacy.

Police arrested 27-year old Michael Huffman and 22-year old Mary Cobb. They're both charged with first degree robbery.

Police say the two took prescription drugs from the Rite Aide Pharmacy at the Carnaby Square Shopping Center in London.

Witnesses took down the license plate number off the car and contacted police.

Officers pulled over a car matching the description and found more than $82,000 worth of prescription drugs in the car.
