Sheriff's officials were looking Monday for three men who robbed a CVS drugstore in Ladera Heights at gunpoint.

Shortly before the store's closing time at 11 p.m., three men wearing dark clothing, gloves and ski masks and armed with semi-automatic weapons entered the store on the 5000 block of Slauson Avenue, according to a statement from the L.A. County Sheriff's Department.

The men ordered store employees to the ground and tied them up, then took an unspecified amount of money from a cash register and a safe before fleeing, authorities said. No one was injured. 

To report information about the robbery, contact the Marina del Rey sheriff's station at 310-482-6000.
