A 53-year-old pharmacy owner who allegedly pulled a gun on two tax inspectors on Friday in the town of Halkida on Evia, was on the run and being sought by police on Saturday.

The inspectors told police that they visited the suspect’s pharmacy on Wednesday for an on-site check of his financial records.

The 53-year-old allegedly locked the door of the establishment and threatened them with a gun to stop the inspection.

According to their testimony, the tax officials convinced him to unlock the door and left the premises.
