The St. Elizabeth Police have charged two persons, including a teenager, in relation to a robbery committed last month.
 
Fitzroy Hasting, a 23-year-old lifeguard of West End Negril and Little London, Westmoreland, and the teenager are to answer to the charges of robbery with aggravation, possession of a prohibited weapon and using a firearm to commit a felony.
 
It's reported that on May 7, about 3 p.m., the complainants were at a store when Mr. Hasting and the teen entered posing as customers.
 
They reportedly brandished guns and demanded cash.
 
They allegedly stole iPhones and Samsung tablets, valued at $2 million, before escaping in a waiting Toyota Axio motor car.
 
Following investigations, a motorcar with the suspects was intercepted by the police on June 4.
 
The stolen items were reportedly recovered from the vehicle.
 
The suspects were later identified by the complainants.
