Four men accused of robbing a north Harris County electronics store on Thursday are now behind bars.

Johnothan Fields, 24, Jerome Harris, 27, Marckel Burns, 18, and Desmond Phillips, 19, are all charged with aggravated robbery.

According to the Harris County Sheriff's Office, the four suspects entered the store armed with handguns, and one of them fired his weapon at the ceiling. The suspects then demanded money and phones.

The suspects fled in a white van, which was later found abandoned behind a building near the robbery. However, detectives were able to track one of the stolen phones back to an apartment complex in the 5600 block of Yale Street, and that's where they found all four suspects.

No one was injured in the robbery.
