Goose Creek police are looking for two men in connection with a July 28 robbery at a Radio Shack store on St. James Avenue.

Investigators have obtained arrest warrants for Kireem Jamie McCoy, 23, and Vincent Simmons, 20, in connection with the holdup, Capt. John Grainger said. Both men are wanted for armed robbery, kidnapping, conspiracy and possession of a firearm during a violent crime, he said,

Both men are to be considered armed and dangerous, police said.

The holdup occurred about 9 p.m. on July 28. Two men in hoodies entered the store and said they had a gun. They forced one woman to hand over money from a cash register and then made her lie down on the floor in a back room. They told another worker to hand over merchandise before they fled, according to a police report.

Officers stopped a car that matched descriptions of the getaway vehicle and two men jumped out and ran off, police said. The car turned out to be registered to the same address where one of the Radio Shack employees lived, police said.

Investigators charged that employee, 21-year-old Arriel Sanders of Lighthouse Drive in Goose Creek, in connection with the holdup, a police report stated. Police said further investigation led them to identify McCoy and Simmons in the crime.

Anyone with information on the suspects can call the Goose Creek Police Department at 863-5200 or Crime Stoppers at 554-1111.
