Investigators have identified two suspects who they say robbed a Radio Shack at gunpoint in July.

Goose Creek police say 20-year-old Vincent Simmons and 22-year-old Kireem Jamie McCoy have active arrest warrants for armed robbery, kidnapping, conspiracy, and possession of a firearm during a violent crime.

The charges are in relation to an armed robbery at a Radio Shack located at 607 St. James Avenue on July 28, 2012 around 11 p.m.

According to a police report, the two suspects entered Radio Shack and told three store employees to go into the store's back room and to lie on the ground. One of the suspects said he had a gun.

Police say one suspect took money out of the cash register, while the other suspect had an employee open a merchandise case and put the items in a bag.

Employees say the two suspects left the store through the rear exit when they were finished.

Both suspects were captured on by surveillance cameras.

In late July, police arrested a clerk at the store in connection with the crime after learning the suspects' getaway vehicle was registered in the clerk's mother's name.

Arriel Sanders, 21, was charged with armed robbery with a deadly weapon, criminal conspiracy, and two counts of kidnapping.
