FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) - Two Florence men are facing charges after an incident in a pharmacy Thursday afternoon.

Major Carlos Raines, spokesman for the Florence City Police Dept., says two men entered the Walmart pharmacy on Beltline Drive to pick up a prescription, but it had been canceled by the doctor.

When 30-year-old Krunal Harshad Patel found out his drugs were unavailable, he threatened to urinate on the floor, and then said he would blow up the doctor's office that canceled the prescription, two Walmart locations and unnamed daycare centers.

When investigators arrived at his home to serve the warrant for his arrest, they discovered a large amount of illegal drugs.

Krunal Harshad Patel has been charged with making a bomb threat. He and 30-year-old Himanshu Patel are also charged with drug possession with intent to distribute.
