LAWTON, Okla._Antoine Sears and Adrian Sears appeared in court Thursday and were charged for their alleged roles in an armed robbery.

According to a court affidavit, Antoine and two other men went to his co-worker's apartment in the city's northwest side and robbed the man at gunpoint. Police say several items were stolen including: TVs, a gaming system, other electronics and food. Antoine was arrested at his home after the victim recognized his voice.

Antoine has been charged with first-degree robbery and knowingly concealing stolen property. Adrian Sears is facing lesser charges for unauthorized use of a vehicle and attempting to elude police.

Court documents show police spotted Adrian driving the victim's car. When they tried to stop him, he refused. After wrecking the stolen vehicle, police say Adrian ran onto Fort Sill, leading investigators on an eight-hour long manhunt. He was arrested after Fort Sill police spotted him walking along the railroad tracks. Adrian told police he ran because he thought he was going to get shot after he wrecked the car and police opened fire.

He also claimed he was driving the stolen because he wanted to buy it and was test driving it.

Both men are scheduled to return to court on July 14.
