Police: RadioShack Defendants Responsible for Two More Robberies

Two defendants in June's RVC RadioShack robbery dealt 20 charges.

The two defendants who allegedly helped rob the Rockville Centre RadioShack in June have been charged in two additional 2012 robberies.

Subsequent investigation by the Nassau County Police's Robbery Squad has revealed Jamar Parker, 28, of Hempstead, and KaJuan Crawley, 25, of Brooklyn, were responsible for two robberies in Hempstead and Westbury.

According to police, the duo robbed the T-Mobile located at 391 Peninsula Blvd. in Hempstead on June 11 and the robbery of the Radio Shack located at 541 Old Country Road in Westbury on June 18.

Parker and Crawley were charged with 14 counts of robbery and six counts of criminal possession of stolen property. They will be arraigned on Jan. 24.

The two defendants were the only suspects caught in a June 21 robbery at the RadioShack located at 264 Sunrise Highway in Rockville Centre.

According to police, three black men entered the RadioShack around 2:15 p.m. At least one of them brandished a long-barreled revolver and announced a robbery.

Police said employees were forced to the rear of the store while the three men bagged high-priced electronics including cell phones, gaming systems and iPad tablets. The suspects then fled with the merchandise out the front door and into a light-colored, older model SUV with Florida plates.

Police were notified by a witness who tried to chase the robbers.  The witness was impeded by two additional subjects in a second vehicle — a yellow, 2012 Chevrolet Camaro — that continually blocked the path of the witness' car, police said.

The two subjects in the Camaro — Parker and Crawley — were eventually stopped by responding First Precinct officers on Fulton and North Franklin avenues in Hempstead and arrested without further incident, police said.

After a subsequent investigation by Robbery Squad detectives, Parker and Crawley were linked to an attempted robbery that occurred at the T-Mobile store located at 590 Hempstead Turnpike in West Hempstead on June 20.
