DUBLIN, Ireland - In a terrifying incident on Saturday, men wielding screwdrivers threatened employees at a Dublin pharmacy.

The incident occurred shortly after 2 p.m. Saturday at a busy pharmacy in Donnybrook, Dublin 4, when two men stormed in brandishing screwdrivers.

They threatened the employees and stole cash, a phone, and medication from the premises before fleeing on foot.

Following a follow-up operation in Clonskeagh, Garda tracked down the raiders.

"As a follow-up, detectives from the Donnybrook District conducted a search and arrest operation in the Clonskeagh area, arresting two men in their 40s." Medication was also recovered in large quantities. Both are detained at Irishtown Garda Station under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act of 1984."
