FIRST ON 3: Deputies search for masked men who robbed area CVS


NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- Deputies are investigating after dispatchers say two masked men robbed an area CVS Pharmacy at gunpoint early this morning.

Dispatchers say just after 4 a.m., they got a call reporting the crime at the Market Street and Gordon Road CVS Pharmacy between Wilmington and the Ogden area, which is a 24-hour pharmacy store.

They say just minutes before deputies got to the scene, two robbers wearing masks over their faces walked into the store with at least one gun. New Hanover County Sheriff's deputies and Wilmington Police both responded to search for suspects, blocking off parts of the area with crime tape.

There's no word yet on what the duo got away with. Dispatchers do say, though, that no one was hurt during the robbery.
