MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Suspects are in custody after police say they robbed a cell phone store and led police on a chase that ended in Hickory Hill.

It started just after 1 p.m. Thursday at a Metro PCS store in the 4600 block of Elvis Presley Boulevard.

Police say two males armed with handguns robbed the business and fled in a white Nissan Altima.

Officers pursued them to Ridgeline Cove in Hickory Hill, where the two males and a female were detained at 2 p.m. Police did not specify whether the female was a suspect.

No injuries were reported.

WREG has learned cameras at Metro PCS apparently captured the robbery, and people said they’ve seen video on Facebook that captured part of the chase.

Police say they are working right now on gathering all of that video. WREG will update as soon as we find out more about the people in custody.
