DAYTONA BEACH --It didn't take police long to catch up with two men arrested today on armed robbery charges with a firearm of the Publix supermasrket 1500 Beville Road just before 7:30 a.m..
Police had ample evidence in charging Antony Conyers, Jr., 23, and Shavonski Shipmon, 27.
First there was store video surveillance of the armed robbery. The police, armed with a search warrant, hit their residence and the getaway car used in the heist.
"The cash drawer and a sizable amount of money was recovered from the apartment and one handgun and a BB gun was recovered from the car," Daytona Beach police spokesman Investigator Jimmy Flynt said.
One of the robbers demanded cash from the attendant in the first aisle, taking $88 in cash and some postage stamps while the second gunman ordered another employee onto the floor while demanding yet another employee at gunpoint to go to the safe where he ordered her to remove the cash -- fleeing with $3,518 from the safe.
Witnesses got the tag number and the entire robbery as well as the getaway car were caught on store surveillance cameras, which enabled police to catch up with the robbers after matching the tag of the suspect Buick they were driving with an address for the tag registration.
One of the accused gunmen gave police a statement in which he told his cohort "not to chicken out" before the robbery was committed, according to the arrest report.
