Police have signed arrest warrants for two teenagers accused of robbing two Asheville convenience stores at gunpoint less than a week ago.

Asheville police said on July 15 at about 10:05 p.m., the Rivers Edge Shell station was robbed by three men at gunpoint.

Police said the men were able to get away with cash and were involved in another robbery at a Hot Spot three days later.

On Monday, police said they issued warrants on charges of robbery with a dangerous weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon, attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon, and aiding and abetting armed robbery for Tyquiece Boyd, 18, and Kristoff Hunter, 19, both of Asheville.

Hunter was already in custody as of 11:30 a.m. Monday but police said they were still looking for Boyd, who they believe is armed.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call contact the Asheville Police Department at 828-252-1110 or Crime Stoppers 828-255-5050.
