Three men were charged Saturday with stealing money and cellphones at gunpoint from a T-Mobile store in Hempstead.

Kervyn Williams, 28, and Sherwyn Clarke, 18, both of Brooklyn, entered the cellphone store at 391 Peninsula Blvd. before 7:45 p.m. on Friday, Nassau police said.

Williams showed a handgun as they ordered two employees into a rear office, police said. They ordered one employee to open the registers, then fled in a black Infiniti, driven by Oshane Morgan, 27, of Brentwood, with an undetermined amount of money and several cellphones, police said.

Two customers were in the store during the robbery, police said, but there were no reported injuries.

Suffolk police stopped the Infiniti on Washington Avenue in Brentwood.

At their arraignment on Saturday in Hempstead, bail was set for Williams at $500,000 bond; for Clarke, $300,000 bond; and for Morgan, $300,000 bond.

Williams and Morgan are due back in court Tuesday. Clarke is due back in court Wednesday. Each was charged with two counts of robbery in the first-degree and second-degree. Williams was also charged with third-degree criminal possession of a weapon.

Garden City attorney Paul R. Delle, who represented Morgan at the arraignment, told the court his client was not the getaway driver even though his car was used in the robbery.
