(Russellville, Arkansas-AP) -- Bond for two Oklahoma teenagers accused of robbing two Arkansas convenience stores is $100,000 each.

Prosecutor David Gibbons says he plans to charge the 16- and 14-year old teens as adults with two counts each of aggravated robbery. Their names haven't been released.

Pope County Sheriff Jay Winters says one of the teens entered a convenience store Saturday morning in Russellville, Arkansas, displayed a pistol and demanded the money from the cash register.

Less than a half hour later, county authorities were called to a similar robbery at a convenience store in Atkins, about 10 miles east of the first robbery. A person fitting the description of the first suspect pulled a gun and demanded money.

The teens were found in Morrilton, Arkansas, later Saturday in a car that was reported stolen.
