Two masked men, one armed with a small-caliber handgun, escaped with an undisclosed amount of narcotics and cash after robbing the Washington Heights Pharmacy about 10 a.m. yesterday.

Westminster police said the men, both wearing ski masks, entered the pharmacy in the 100 block of Airport Drive, next to the Gateway Medical Center in the Westminster Air Business Park, and announced a holdup.

There were no customers in the store at the time, police said.

The robbers took the employees behind a counter and tied their ankles and wrists with duct tape, then went to a narcotics shelf and took drugs, and stole cash from the registers before they fled.

Police described the men as both in their 30s and about 6 feet tall.

One man had blond hair and weighed about 180 pounds. He was wearing jeans, a blue flannel shirt and work boots.

The second man weighed about 150 pounds, and was wearing a black sweat suit and work boots.

Police said one of the employees got free after about 15 minutes.

Investigators said the employees were unable to say which way the robbers fled.
