Two men are in police custody after police say they robbed the medicine shop, took off, and were cornered near a house just 4 blocks away.

As employees opened The Medicine Shop in Nicholasville, they say two men came in, pulled a knife, and implied they had a gun. The men demanded drugs and after the employees handed them over, the two fled in a teal Ford Escort.

Police located the getaway car in a neighborhood about 4 blocks away from the drug store. Police surrounded the house, and were eventually able to take the two men matching descriptions given by witnesses into custody.

No one was hurt during the robbery.
