MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Police in Myrtle Beach have pressed charges Thursday against two men they believe to be the suspects behind a carjacking that occurred in a Lowe's parking lot on Wednesday.
Curtis Anthony Cheeseboro, 48, of Aynor, and Daniel Isiah Mitchell, 24, of Myrtle Beach, have both been charged with carjacking after allegedly stealing a Ford F-150 pick-up truck from its owner at Lowe's in Myrtle Beach.
According to a report from Myrtle Beach Police, the two men were seen leaving Lowe's in what appeared to be a white Chevrolet Suburban or Cadillac Escalade. The vehicle was driven to a far corner of the store's parking lot, where it stopped and a man exited the vehicle.
A driver of an F-150 pick-up truck was approached by the suspect, who lifted up his shirt and flashed a black-in-color handgun. The victim told police they were ordered to give the keys of the truck to the suspect.
The truck, according to police, was later recovered in Longs at 8 a.m. Thursday morning.
Police arrested Mitchell on Thursday after he made a visit to the Myrtle Beach Jail to check on Cheeseboro, who was booked on an unrelated charge.
Both suspects remain in police custody.
