JEFFERSON COUNTY — A pair of Pinson brothers are behind bars after allegedly robbing a convenience store on New Castle Road near Morris on Thursday.
Just before 2 p.m. Thursday, Jefferson County sheriff’s deputies responded to a report of a robbery in the 6600 block of New Castle Road. A caller reported that the store had just been robbed by two men.
One was armed with a baseball bat and the other was armed with a machete, said Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Randy Christian.
After robbing the store, the two men fled in a gold pickup truck, Christian said. A description of the truck was broadcast to responding units. Deputies were familiar with a vehicle matching the description as well as two brothers that often drove the vehicle.
