Police say that Harry George Cook Cruz and Logan Junior Elias made off with an unknown amount of cash but they didn't get far.

Two men apparently high on ice hatched a plan to rob a game room over the weekend, and while they were able to make off with the cash, their stint on the run was quickly brought to a close by authorities.

It took authorities less than 48 hours to identify the suspects who carried out a robbery at the Game Time game room in Tamuning. Police say that Harry George Cook Cruz and Logan Junior Elias made off with an unknown amount of cash but they didn’t get far.

According to GPD Spokesman Sgt Paul Tapao, the robbery occurred on Saturday at around 8 o’clock in the morning.

The two men entered the game room testing their luck but it appears that they didn’t intend to play games. Instead, one of the suspects began assaulting the cashier while the other suspect managed to gain entry into the service counter, pocketing the cash.

Following the robbery, police say that the suspects made their getaway in an unknown vehicle. While it is not disclosed how authorities were able to locate the men, Tapao says that detectives working the case were able to identify and locate them for questioning.

Cruz and Elias were subsequently arrested on charges of robbery, aggravated assault, assault, felonious restraint, criminal facilitation, conspiracy, criminal mischief, theft and possession of a schedule two controlled substance among other charges.

Booked and confined the two men will appear before the court to answer to the allegations on Tuesday.
