Harford County sheriff's deputies have arrested two men in the armed robberies of two convenience stores.
Marquis M. Starks of Edgewood and James C. Proctor of Ellicott City, both 19, are being held without bail in the Harford County Detention Center. They were charged Wednesday in the robberies of the Royal Lands store in the 1700 block of Hanson Road in Edgewood and the Royal Farms Store in the 500 block of Joppa Farm Road in Joppa.

Police said one man would pose as a shopper until the other arrived displaying a knife and demanding money. The men fled each store with an undisclosed amount of money.
Using witness descriptions, deputies found the men in the Watergate Community.
