Two men have been arrested in an armed robbery of a discount store in the Pinehurst area.
The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office says it received a 911 call shortly before 10pm Tuesday about a robbery that occurred at Dollar General Store in the 35600 block of FM 1774.
A witness told deputies two armed suspects demanded money, then fled the store. The two male suspects entered a wooded area near the store.
Deputies tracked down one of the men and deputies and the Texas Department of Public Safety set up a perimeter around the wooded area beside the store. The second suspect was eventually spotted by a DPS trooper and taken into custody.
Ricky Ball, 20, and Earnest Brown, 19, are both charged with aggravated robbery. The handguns were recovered and no injuries were reported.
