The man and woman wanted out of North Carolina who were arrested Tuesday night following an armed robbery in Myrtle Beach appeared before a judge Thursday morning.

Jeremy Lamar Hayes and Kennedy Mariah Boggs, both of North Carolina, had an initial appearance before a local magistrate judge.

Hayes is charged with being a fugitive from justice as well as three counts of armed robbery, two counts of possession of a weapon during a violent crime, and three counts of kidnapping.

Boggs is charged with two counts of armed robbery and failure to stop for a blue light.

The judge denied bond for Boggs on the armed robbery charges, but set her bond at $75,000 for the failure to stop for a blue light charge.

The hearing for Hayes was continued until Thursday afternoon due to questions about extradition.

Thursday afternoon Hayes decided to not waive extradition to North Carolina on the charges he faces there.

The judge denied bond for Hayes on all charges.

A public defender will be appointed for him.

The charges against the two come after, on Tuesday night, Hayes went into a Pizza Hut on South Kings Highway with a gun and demanded money from the register, according to a police report.

According to an arrest warrant, Hayes told the victims "don't move, I'll kill you," and forced them to get on the floor and count to thirty while he left the scene. He also is accused of stealing a person's cell phone.

Police immediately began canvassing the area and used the city surveillance cameras to try to find the car seen at the scene. The cameras found the vehicle on South Ocean Boulevard and both people in the car, later identified as Hayes and Boggs, were arrested.

Boggs was reportedly the driver of the car they fled the scene in and she told officers "she knew what was taking place because she and the Co-Defendant had done this before," according to the warrant.

Police are also charging the two with an armed robbery on that happened on Jan. 29 at business on North Kings Highway.

According to arrest warrants, Hayes went into the business with a handgun and demanded money from the register. Several other items, including a cash, the business's phone and a cell phone, were also taken.

The victim in that robbery positively identified Hayes during a photo lineup, according to the warrant.

Boggs reportedly also told officers she was the getaway driver during this armed robbery.

According to the Randoph County Sheriff's Office in North Carolina, Hayes was wanted on 15 outstanding warrants and Boggs had three outstanding warrants.

Hayes was considered a suspect in the armed robbery and shooting committed at a Mexican store in Ramseur, N.C. on Jan. 26 and a home invasion from Jan. 24 in Asheboro, N.C., according to the Facebook post.
