Two men were arrested for allegedly committing an armed robbery at a store in Rancho Cucamonga on Aug. 28, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department.

At about 3:33 p.m., deputies from the Rancho Cucamonga Police Department responded to a business in the 8100 block of Vineyard Avenue for a report of an armed robbery.

The suspects entered the Cricket Wireless store, brandished a black handgun and demanded money. The suspects fled the location in a Silver Nissan Altima with a California temporary plate.

Through investigation, deputies learned the name and address of the suspect vehicle, which was a short distance away from the incident location.

Deputies responded to the residence and contacted the suspects in the Nissan Altima. The suspects were identified as Armonte Gary, 23, of Rosamond, and Alontae Short, 28, of Los Angeles.

Both suspects were arrested and booked into West Valley Detention Center, where they were being held in lieu of $100,000 bail.
