Tulsa nursing home robbed by 3 armed men

TULSA - Police say three armed men forced their way into a midtown Tulsa nursing home early Thursday morning, looking for pills.

Around 4 a.m., police say an employee was taking a break outside Companion Care Center near 36th and Sheridan when the men approached.

One of the suspects stayed by the door as a lookout while the other two forced the employee to the medicine closet at gunpoint.

Police say the men filled bags with various narcotics before they were interrupted by another employee and a patient.

The suspects made off with an employee's purse but dropped all the medication as they fled.

A canine officer was unable to locate the men, who police say took off in a car.

Police are looking for three black males between 18 and 25 years old, all stand about 5 feet 6 or 5 feet 7.

None of the employees were hurt.
