HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – Horry County Police Detectives from the Criminal Investigation Division’s Robbery and Homicide Unit arrested a Conway man and woman Thursday night connected to the home invasion that took place in Conway on Wednesday.

Latasha Lynne Shelley, age 34, and Joshua Cain Windham, age 24, are both charged with first degree burglary, kidnapping, possession of a weapon during a violent crime and armed robbery, according to a news release from the HCPD.

Police had been looking for a man and woman who reportedly tied up a 72-year-old and 90-year old woman, locked them in a bathroom and ransacked the residence after forcing their way in with shotguns Wednesday morning on Highway 19 in Conway, according to a news release from the HCPD.

Officers of the HCPD responded to the home invasion call around 9:15 a.m.

"I was really scared,” said Eva Chestnut, one of the victims. “I was trying not to let my Mama know I was afraid because she was so afraid she was going to die."

Chestnut says the suspects locked her and her mother in the bathroom. While in there, they could hear the suspects ransacking the master bedroom.

The suspects took numerous firearms, jewelry, money in $2 bills and the victim’s 2004 white Chevrolet C19C 1500 Extended cab pick-up truck. The truck should have SC Tag CGC-822, a small faded "tiger paw" sticker on the tailgate and silver bed rails. The truck had magnetic stickers on the sides of the truck for Chestnut Pools.

Bond was denied during a hearing Friday afternoon for Shelley and Windham, according to the J. Reuben Long Detention Center Booking Office.
