MIAMI GARDENS (CBS4) – Miami-Dade Police are looking for two armed robbers who stormed a Miami Gardens MetroPCS store Monday night and demanded thousands of dollars worth of high end cell phones.

Police responded to the store in the area of 4880 NW 183rd street at around 8 p.m. Police tell CBS4’s Maggie Newland that three suspects fled the scene with guns and cell phones.

Store owner Clara Cordova heard about the robbery from her store manager.

“Obviously we were very concerned and we ran over here and found the scene,” she said. “From what we know it was two men that came in with guns. They were very aggressive and took one of the girls to the back and asked her to open up the cage where we have the phones and they started taking the phones and immediately ran out.”

Although she’s upset about the robbery, she says her employees are her biggest concern.

“We want to make sure everybody’s safe. There are three pregnant girls inside. They must be scared to death. We want to make sure they’re okay and their safety is obviously the most important thing to us,” said Cordova.

She says the store does have a surveillance system though she’s not yet sure what the video will show. Police say they do have leads in the case.
