Police have obtained warrants charging both suspects with robbery with a dangerous weapon, second-degree kidnapping and other charges associated with the robbery.

Maynor left the store and got away with an undisclosed amount of cash in a vehicle with his girlfriend, Alisha Kay Hunt, the post said.

They are currently in the custody of the Beufort Police Department in South Carolina, where they are facing additional charges, including grand larceny and two additional counts of armed robbery in that jurisdiction.

Once the charges are addressed in Beufort, they will be transported back to Robeson County to be served with pending charges.
