Second Brooksville Armed Robber Captured


(UPDATE)    11 a.m.-    The second suspect in yesterday’s Dollar General Store armed robbery has been captured without incident after a night on the run.


It’s been a long night for Hernando County residents along Saturn Road, Ayers Road, and U.S. 41.

They are anxious because authorities believe an armed robber is hiding out in the wooded area that surrounds them.

The robber and another one held up a Sherman Hills Boulevard Dollar General Store in Brooksville.

Deputies tracked them for 15 miles before shooting and killing one robber.

The second one is still at large.
