One of the men pulled out a handgun and asked employees to give him phones, police said. Police said the couple fled the store with numerous phones. A 43-year-old man and a 22-year-old man who were working were not injured.

Officers spotted the vehicle that Stanley and White fled while driving on Stephenson near Whitcomb. Police attempted to stop the vehicle, which led to a brief chase before Stanley and White hit a sign near E. Fourth and Stephenson in Royal Oak. They were later arrested without incident.

Stanley was charged with two counts of armed robbery, three counts of possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony and possession of a weapon as a felon. He received a cash bond of $2 million.

White was charged with two counts of armed robbery and third-degree flight from a police officer. He received a $1 million cash bond.

Both men are being held in Oakland County Jail.
