      The suspects were caught a short time later by Onondaga County Sheriffâ??s Deputies, Syracuse Police and DeWitt Police in Syracuse.

      Both were charged with second degree robbery, third degree grand larceny and criminal use of a firearm and were taken to the Onondaga County Justice Center on $100,000 bail.

      No one was hurt during the robbery, according to police.
