The Charleston Police Department says a 17-year-old boy already charged for an armed robbery at a West Ashley apartment complex has been charged again for the same crime.

Authorities charged Joseph Jenkins with the April 17 armed robbery at the Cypress Cove Apartments. Jenkins has already been charged for the April 22 armed robbery at the apartment complex.

Anthony Heyward, 17, is also being charged for both armed robberies.

School officials say Heyward is a student at West Ashley High School while Jenkins was expelled from the school a few months ago and enrolled in an alternative program.

Jenkins and Heyward are still being held at the Charleston County Detention Center. 

The investigation into both armed robberies continues.
