Tulsa Police are looking for three men who tried to rob a care facility in midtown Tulsa early Thursday morning. 

Around 3:30am three men approached an employee of the Companion Care Socialized Care Center outside the building, pulled a gun on her, and forced her inside. 

They went straight to the medicine room, where they demanded Lortab and other medications. Before they could get them, a patient and another employee on a cell phone scared them away. They did take a purse that belonged to one of the employees. 

They left some bags behind, which police collected as evidence. Officers believe they ran to a nearby apartment complex, but a K-9 officer lost their scent in the parking lot.

That must be where they got in the car. These must be some screw loose criminals. Leaving stuff behind. Might help put them behind bars.
