    Philadelphia police are searching for the suspects involved in the armed robbery of an East Mount Airy pharmacy Sunday.

    Police say shortly after 8 p.m. on July 10, three men stole $3,000 from a safe inside of a Rite-Aid on the 1300 block of East Washington Lane.

    According to investigators, the trio also stole lottery tickets, cigarettes and cigars.

    “If they’re brazen enough to do a robbery of a store like this, that has video, then they’re brazen enough to do anything,” Lieutenant George McClay said during a Tuesday news conference.
