LINCOLNTON, N.C. -- Authorities in Lincoln County are continuing their investigation into a robbery in which the thieves ripped the doors off of a pharmacy.
Around 2:30 on the morning of Monday, January 31, the alarms began to sound at TAS Drugs in Lincoln County, alerting Lincoln County Sheriff's Deputies to respond to the business in the 4400 block of West NC Highway 27.
