ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  Two teenagers  believed to be about 15 years old held up Titlebucks Title Pawn at 617 North Slappey business in North Albany around 1:15 Monday afternoon.  

The two robbers walked in and pointed guns at employees, demanded money, and took off. Shortly after, police took two people into custody, who they are interviewing. Investigators are reviewing surveillance tapes of the robbery.

Police say if you see teenagers walking around during school hours and they look suspicious, call police.  

"If they would just give us a call and let us look into it, to see why these kids are not where they're supposed to be we would greatly appreciate it," said Albany Police Media Manager Phyllis Banks-Whitley. "The ages are getting younger and younger and we need to do something to combat that."

 No one was hurt during the robbery.
