Jesse Pike, the owner of Pike's Pharmacy, was happy to hear that police had new photos of the robbery suspects.

“Two men burst into the store with guns not only drawn, but pointing at my family, my staff," explained Pike.

His family members and employees were bound with zip ties while two men stole from the store. He said they were looking for pills like Oxycontin and Xanax, and they got away with $7000 worth of medicine.

“These people knew exactly what they were doing and they did it very well," said Pike.

He hopes someone will be able to identify the men from the new photos being released by police.

“I just hope that someone will recognize these photographs. Hopefully these people can be apprehended and we can find some way to deal with this opioid epidemic,” said Pike.

Anyone with information in regards to these robberies is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.
