WISE COUNTY, Va. (WYMT/WJHL) - A store owner in Pound is okay after deputies said two people tied him up and robbed his business.

Officers with the Wise County Sheriff's Office say two people with masks went into the novelty shop known as "Get-It-Gone"earlier this week.

Deputies say the suspects overpowered the store's owner and bound and blindfolded him. The Sheriff's Office then says the two people took off with thousands of dollars of merchandise and money.

Deputies say they charged Joshua Charles Harris and Lydia Trista Phillips with robbery, abduction and conspiracy to commit robbery.
