An investigation from detectives at the Rockville Centre Police Department has resulted in the arrests of two suspects for a 2011 gunpoint robbery on N. Centre Avenue.
Police said that at approximately 4:30 a.m. on Sept. 23, two suspects, later identified as Taaj Cox and Justin Mayers, robbed four victims at gunpoint in front of 100 N. Centre Ave.
A semi-automatic handgun was held to one of the victim's faces and property was demanded, police said. The property stolen included numerous credit/debit cards, cash, personal identifications, cell phones, and keys.
After a lengthy investigation, Cox was arrested on June 6 in front of 30 Old Mill Court in Rockville Centre. Detectives eventually located and arrested Justin Mayers in Moscow, Pa., on Oct. 25.
Both defendants were charged with robbery in the first degree and, if convicted, could face up to 20 years in prison.
