The men were caught in the Nassau Village area that day. Police allegedly recovered the stolen money and a 9mm pistol with four rounds of ammunition.

Prosecutors allege that Miller and Bain are responsible for a gunpoint robbery at John Chea Number 8 on Boyd Road. The assailants got away with $1,000.

Two days before the hold-up at Burger King, prosecutors allege that Miller robbed a woman of $250, the property of Woodlyn’s Beauty Salon.

On the same date, Miller and Bain are accused of robbing Little Caesars Pizza on East Street South of an unknown sum.

The men are also accused of robbing Sbarro’s Restaurant on West Bay Street on June 24 of $1,433. On the same date, Miller alone allegedly robbed D & M Wholesale of $62.

They were not required to enter pleas to the charges when they appeared before Magistrate Samuel McKinney.

They were denied bail and return to court on October 1.
