The search continues for two suspects in a pharmacy hold-up in Dale, Indiana.

Police are looking for 26-year-old Jacob Beyers, and 27-year-old Mallory Anne Johnson, both of Mt. Vernon. The armed robbery happened Wednesday afternoon and no one was hurt.

Indiana State Police have released photos of the suspects. One shows Beyers leaning on a counter while talking to a pharmacist, another are of Johnson inside the store as well as her driver's license photo.

The pharmacy says this incident is a first for them.

"It happened so fast," says Greg Turner, the owner of Dale Pharmacy. "Even after looking at the picture, it's not someone I've ever seen in the story before. None of the employees had seen him in the store before either."

Turner watched as Beyers showed a gun to the pharmacist behind the counter, who happens to be his wife.

"He raised his shirt, showed the gun, threatened the pharmacist and said, 'I want drugs.' She proceeded back to get to narcotics that we had, and gave them to him," says Turner. "He left from that point. It was over in about two minutes from that point. Here and gone."

Turner says they've never had this happen before, but that they regularly train for these situations.

"State police have come and trained our staff over the years," says Turner. "Everybody responded appropriately, and exactly as they've been trained. And hence, I think, nobody got hurt."

State police got the images off of the store's security cameras. On Thursday, they identified Beyers and Johnson, both who are from Mt. Vernon.

"There could possibly be a third person with them," says Chad Dick, a state trooper. "The detectives notified me that they have received arrest warrants for the two individuals that came into the pharmacy. At this time, we don't know what their whereabouts are."

Sgt. Dick says Beyers and Johnson are considered armed and dangerous. Johnson's family contacted 14 News and is urging the suspects to turn themselves in. The family tells 14 News that they attempted to contact them, but their phones are turned off.

If you have any information about where they might be, call police.
