Oklahoma City Police have arrested two men suspected of robbing Christie's Toy Box, a store that sells sexual toys and lingerie.

A store employee says a man walked into the store around 9:30 p.m. on December 9. He was wearing a bandana around his neck and a knit cap. The clerk said he walked up to the counter and pointed a gun at her.

The suspect demanded all the cash and coins in the register. The clerk handed over the money. The suspect ran out of the store and jumped into a red pickup truck driven by another man.

The clerk immediately called police. Police quickly shared the description of the suspects' vehicle and officers spotted the truck just a few blocks away. They stopped the truck and detained the two men inside.

Police searched the truck and found several bags of marijuana. Investigators also used surveillance video from Christie's Toy Box to positively identify one of the suspects as the man who robbed the store.

Police say 27-year-old Jayme Ernst is the person who grabbed the cash and ran. They believe 50-year-old Richard Mitchell drove the getaway vehicle.

Both men were arrested and booked into the Oklahoma County jail on complaints of robbery with a dangerous weapon and possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent.
