MONROE, CT — Four men wearing ski masks, some in hoodie sweatshirts, entered the Rite Aid pharmacy at 508 Monroe Turnpike Wednesday afternoon and ordered employees to open the safe where narcotics are stored.

Thousands of pills of various narcotics were stolen and the incident is still under investigation, according to police.
