SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine — A robbery at a Portland pharmacy followed by a brief standoff at a South Portland home has resulted in the arrest of three men.

Police say a CVS store in Portland was robbed just before 8 p.m. on Tuesday by people wearing Halloween masks and claiming to be armed with knives.

The suspects fled but were traced to a home in South Portland based on a description of the thieves’ getaway vehicle. Police did not say if they made off with money or drugs or both.

Police surrounded the home and after a brief standoff the suspects were taken into custody.

Authorities say 29-year-old Ivan Papkee; 32-year-old Gustave Papkee; and 24-year-old Ryan Best all face robbery charges.
