Tampa officers search for two armed robbers of a cell phone store

TAMPA — Police detectives were reportedly searching for two men after the armed robbery of a Metro PCS store Tuesday afternoon.

The two unidentified men entered the store on 2602 E Busch Blvd. with T-shirts wrapped around their faces about 4:30 p.m. One suspect brandished a black semiautomatic handgun, according to police reports.

Both men demanded cash from the register be placed in a plastic grocery bag. A customer's purse was also taken.

Both men were described as 16-20 years old. At one point, the shirt concealing a man's face dropped, police said, but detailed descriptions or photos were not immediately provided.

They fled the scene in a four-door silver Dodge Intrepid or gray Pontiac Grand Am, thought to relatively recent model with chrome rims and dark tinted windows.
