RIDGEFIELD, N.J. -- Two robbers -- one armed with a handgun -- took several bottles of prescription drugs and about $640 in cash from a Ridgefield pharmacy over the weekend after ordering a customer to the floor and confronting two employees, police said Monday.

Victims told police the pair entered Anthony's Pharmacy on Shaler Boulevard just before noon Saturday, Deputy Chief Robert Meurer said.

The gunman -- described as black, 30 to 35 years old, about 5-foot-10 and 170 to 180 pounds with a stocky build -- had a ski mask over his face and was wearing a dark-colored pullover with a large "23" on the back, Meurer said.

His accomplice -- also described as black, 25 to 30, about 6 feet tall with a thinner build -- had a black and white bandana over his nose and a zipped-up hoodie, he said.

The second man "walked behind the counter and confronted two female employees," then took out a large plastic garbage bag and "demanded various prescription narcotics along with the register drawer," the deputy chief said.

The pair fled on foot with the goods north on Shaler Boulevard, witnesses said.

No one was injured, Meurer said.
