South Boston Police on Tuesday morning arrested two Yonkers, N.Y. women and charged each with one count of robbery.

The women, 34 year old Tawnesha Ellison and 24 year old Portia Wiggins, were stopped while traveling on Highway 360 where a silver car described as bearing New York tags was spotted.

Officers from the South Boston Police Department had been called to the Jiffy Store at 910 John Randolph Boulevard shortly before 7:30 a.m. that morning hearing that an individual had been robbed there.

At the store police were told that two female suspects had been involved in the robbery and they had left the store headed eastbound on US 360.

Officer C. Mann spotted a vehicle matching the description given by the reporting party and arrested the two women who are being held in the Blue Ridge Regional Jail in Halifax without bond.

Officers recovered an undisclosed amount of cash believed to be linked to the robbery.
