As­sis­tant man­ager robs his own Fam­ily Dol­lar Store, Colorado Springs po­lice say

The Denver Post - - NEWS - By Jesse Paul

An as­sis­tant man­ager has been ar­rested on sus­pi­cion of rob­bing the Fam­ily Dol­lar Store he works at in Colorado Springs, po­lice say.

Martel­lius Bryant, 30, along with 21year-old Ale­jan­dro Pablo al­legedly heldup the dis­count store on the 1700 block of South Cir­cle Drive on Wed­nes­day night.

Colorado Springs po­lice say the pair bound two em­ploy­ees with duct tape be­fore mak­ing off with cash and other items.

Of­fi­cers in­ves­ti­gat­ing the rob­bery quickly noted the sus­pects had left the store in a ve­hi­cle be­cause of foot­prints in the fresh snow. “One of the vic­tims was very ar­tic­u­late and able to pro­vide de­tailed sus­pect de­scrip­tions,” po­lice said in a news re­lease. “Fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tion re­vealed an off-duty as­sis­tant man­ager of the store, along with a known as­so­ci­ate, were likely the sus­pects.” A search of Bryant’s home re­vealed items taken in the rob­bery, in­clud­ing cash, po­lice said.

Bryant is be­ing held at the El Paso County jail in lieu of $25,000 bail, records show. Pablo is also be­ing held at the jail.
