OKLAHOMA CITY -

Police have arrested two people suspected of jumping the counters at two metro pharmacies, pointing a gun at workers and stealing pills.

David Mclendon, 35, and Angelique Earls, 30, were taken into custody around 3 a.m. Saturday at Interstate 40 and Council.

Police say Mclendon and Earls may have been behind two robberies in the metro. The most recent one happened around 3 p.m. Friday at a Walgreen's near S.W. 59th Street and Penn. A man and woman rushed into the store, and jumped over the pharmacy counter.

Surveillance cameras captured the entire crime. The video shows the man pointing a gun at a pharmacist's head and forcing him to hand over drugs and money. His female accomplice forced another pharmacy technician to give her narcotics before the two run from the store.

During the robbery, the suspects did fire some shots, but no one was hurt.

Police say the crime is very similar to a robbery at a CVS Pharmacy in Del City on November 7. Gunshots were also fired during this robbery.

Both robberies only took a few minutes.
