The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office has released surveillance photos of suspects sought in an armed robbery on Wednesday afternoon of the Kay Jewelers at Tanger I.

Two black males with backpacks walked into the store wearing white T-shirts and dark pants. They were wearing gloves and holding a weapon.

They ordered the manager to open two jewelry cases and emptied the merchandise into the backpacks, according to the BCSO. The store employees were ordered to the back room and restrained with duct tape.

The suspects took the employees phones and the keys to the manager's company vehicle. The workers freed themselves and called the authorities. Then they was discovered that the suspects had taken the manager's car, which is a silver 2012 Chevy Cruze with SC tag HSP243. 

One suspect is described as approximately 6'4" and 170 lbs. He's between 21-26 years old and bald. The other suspect is between 35-40 years old; 5'8" and about 180 lbs.
