    MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Two West Memphis men were arrested and are now facing multiple charges in connection to the crash-and-grab burglary of a pharmacy earlier this month.

    Erwin Bedford, 42, and Lawarren Holloway, 44, are accused of crashing their car into the Arkansas Care in Parkin, entering the pharmacy department, and taking prescription medication from the business on June 3.

    The Crittenden County Sheriff’s Office executed search warrants on both of their homes. Deputies allegedly found evidence linking both men to the burglary. Bedford and Holloway were then taken into custody.

    The sheriff’s office says that the two men are also facing various other charges related to the search of their homes.
