Darnell Bishop Dontrell Nance
BENTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. - Two men are facing charges in connection with the burglary of 123 firearms from a Dunham's Sports store in Benton Harbor Thursday night.

The suspects, 33-year-old Darnell Bishop and 25-year-old Dontrell Nance, were charged with robbery affecting interstate commerce, brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence, theft of firearms from a federal firearms licensee and knowingly possessing stolen firearms.

According to the police investigation, the suspects went to the home of the store’s manager, held him at gunpoint, blindfolded and handcuffed him and drove him from his house using his own vehicle. They then took him to an unknown location where they threatened him with a gun in order to get the passcode to enter the store, police said.

One of the men left for the store while the other continued to hold the manager against his will, police said.

Using two large Yeti brand coolers, the man carried the firearms out of the store just before midnight.

Police said one of the suspects used the app “Cash App” to move money from the store manager’s debit card to another Cash App account. The manager's bank records showed an attempted transaction to "Dontrell Nanc."

When police recovered the weapons, they found all but one.
