Two Nabbed in Radio Shack Heist

Police said three subjects are still on the lam.

A group of armed men held up the on Sunrise Highway early Thursday afternoon and made off with a slew of high-priced electronics, police said.

According to detectives, three black men entered the Radio Shack at 264 Sunrise Highway around 2:15 p.m. At least one of them brandished a long-barreled revolver and announced the 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 subjects 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.

As a "young adult" student who went to elementary school with one of these kids.. I'd like to start off by saying that your not going to stop underage drinking.. It's something thats engrained in society and it exists everywhere, not only in rockville centre. However as a kid who lives out of town but attended school in rockville centre I can tell you all that there is definately a different parental mentality. I've never seen a town so quick to gossip and slander local teens based on heresay or word of mouth. I think it speaks volumes that there is an entire community anonymously attacking these students and families before the proper information has even been released. Now im not defending them.. What they did was stupid and in my opinion they've potentially ruined theyre own lives in 5 minutes over a drunked late night dispute. However, i find it hard to believe that all of you were there and witnessed the dispute and have a flawless account. You don't know if this "vigalante hero" approached sensibly asking for an apology or approached in an incessant rage seeking revenge and throwing punches. This could be a case of self-defense gone wrong, and its clearly a case of excessive pride for both sides of the argument. They should have to face consequences for what they've done, but for your own sake let the police and law handle it. An angry anonymous blog of nosy citizens trash- talking other citizens isn't going to solve anything. if every rvc parent just worried about

their own kids and knew what they were doing, and were confident they raised them to act with integrity there wouldnt be such a problem. i can tell you that a good 90% of your kids drink, but as long as there respecful and know to stay out of trouble, your doing your job.
