MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Myrtle Beach police arrested two suspects wanted in connection with a pair of armed robberies that happened over the last week.

Lauren Rochele Tucker, 21, and Jamaine Donnell Wilson, 43, were both charged with multiple counts of armed robbery, kidnapping, first-degree assault and first-degree burglary, according to information from the Myrtle Beach Police Department’s website.
