Tips from the public helped Brookhaven Police detectives identify the suspects in the June 12  armed robbery next door to the C-Store on East Monticello Street, said detective Cpl. Jonathan Alford.

Alford said Lowery and Course, who both live at 106 Dogwood Circle in Brandon, are suspects in an armed robbery that occurred sometime between 1 and 2 a.m. June 20 near the C-Store. He said it appears they tied up the clerk at his apartment next door to the store and robbed him at gunpoint. They allegedly took personal items from the clerk and also his keys. That’s how they were able to get into the store, which was closed, he said.

Police said the pair allegedly took store property and an undisclosed amount of cash.

Video surveillance shows them leaving the store in a black Dodge Challenger with dark rims.

Police were called to the scene around 4 a.m. after the clerk was able to get untied and call 911, Alford said.
