Two men are wanted by police after they broke into KVK Tech‘s headquarters in Newtown early Monday morning, authorities say. Known for manufacturing and developing pharmaceuticals, the suspects allegedly arrived armed and demanded drugs.
At around 4:35 a.m., local police received a call from KVK’s overnight security staff about a robbery in progress. They informed officers two black males with covered faces entered the building, then immediately demanded to know where drugs were located.
When security told the men there were no drugs at the building itself, they took drastic measures. The two attempted thieves forced security into an office at gunpoint, threatening to shoot them if they moved.
Despite their threats, the men promptly fled the area. This gave KVK security an opportunity to call the Newtown Township Police.
The first suspect reportedly stands at 5’8″ with a thin build. He wore a t-shirt, gloves, a black beanie, and a form of face-cover.
Meanwhile, the second suspect stands a bit taller at 6’0″ and decided to wear a white construction hat. However, this may not be the suspect’s first time at KVK Tech.
A black male was spotted recently outside the building looking to gain access. He wore floral shorts, a black hat, and a “Big Paw Paw” t-shirt.
The Newtown Township Police are asking anyone with information to step forward immediately. Good Samaritans with knowledge can contact them at (215) 579-1000, or submit an anonymous tip on Crimewatch.
