Radio Shack robbery: Port St. Lucie store employees, customers held at gunpoint

Two men with semi-automatic handguns robbed a Port St. Lucie Radio Shack Friday afternoon, Port St. Lucie police said.

The men entered the store at 10941 South US 1 around 12:30.

An employee was ordered to open a cabinet filled with merchandise but said she couldn't find the key.

Customers and employees were moved to a back storage room and forced to recline face down on the floor until another employee who had a key was called and told to come to the store.

While the gunmen waited, one watched for arriving customers. Police say as new shoppers entered the store the gunman would order them to a back room where his partner held everyone at gunpoint.   

The employee with the key eventually arrived and the two men  got their hands on several iPhones, galaxy phones, cameras, and other merchandise, police said.

It's believed they fled in a black Nissan crossover or SUV.

Anyone with information is urged to call the Port St. Lucie Police Department at 772-871-5001 or Treasure Coast Crime Stoppers at 1-800-273 TIPS.
