Arrests made in armed robbery
Bryan police on Thursday apprehended two men who are charged with robbing Palasota Grocery with a shotgun.
An officer observed a vehicle driving away from the grocery store on Palasota Drive around 11 p.m. without headlights turned on. The officer attempted to stop the vehicle, but the driver fled and abandoned the vehicle on Frontier Street. The officer chased the driver, caught him and took him into custody.
A second officer was able to stop the abandoned and still rolling vehicle before it stuck a nearby house.
A second suspect, who also fled the vehicle after the robbery occurred, was tracked by other officers and a K-9 unit, and taken into custody near Finfeather Road.
Items stolen during the robbery, crack cocaine, and the shotgun used during the robbery were recovered.
The Bryan Police Department wishes to acknowledge several officers who worked to close this case.
Video from the store was made available to Bryan officers.
