Surveillance Camera Footage Shows Gunpoint Robbery at Metro PCS Store

The police have released the above surveillance camera footage of two men accused of robbing a Metro PCS store at gunpoint Friday night.

As The Local reported, the men, now said to be around the age of 40, entered the store at 350 East 14th Street shortly before 7 p.m. One of them (thought to be 6 feet tall and about 160 pounds) displayed a black revolver as the other (5-foot-6, 150 pounds) went behind the counter and took what a police representative said was around $4,000 in cash. The store’s two employees were told to wait in the basement as the men fled.

Last week, The Times pointed out that Metro PCS stores were “low-hanging fruit” for robbers such as the Brooklyn couple who last year committed a dozen or more hold-ups at the wireless stores.
