Saskatoon police are looking for two male suspects believed responsible for two pharmacy robberies 23 minutes apart Saturday morning.

Police say the first robbery took place at 11:34 a.m. in the 400 block of Ledingham Way.

They say two males wearing orange, construction-type overalls with an X on the back demanded pharmaceutical products.

Police say the suspects were given those items by staff and then fled the scene.

At 11:57 a.m., two males wearing similar attire entered a business in the 200 block of Primrose Drive and demanded pharmaceutical products from that location.

After staff complied with the demand, the suspects fled the scene in a black sport utility vehicle.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Saskatoon Police Service or Crime Stoppers.
