INDIANAPOLIS -- Metro police are trying to determine if two CVS robberies on the northeast side Friday morning are related. 

Officers were called to a robbery at 38th Street and Emerson Avenue just after 10:00 a.m. There were reports of an armed man robbing the pharmacy and then taking off in a red car. 

At one point, police thought there might be another suspect inside. K9 units and armed officers surrounded and went into the store. They sent officers with rifles on the roof with the help of an Indianapolis Fire Department ladder truck.

There were no injuries reported.
