1-28-06 – Police arrested two men who are accused of robbing a Lone Grove store Thursday night. Twenty-year-old Bill Curtis Deaton and 19-year-old Michael Ray Paschen are charged with robbery.
Police say the men went into the J&E Mart Thursday night and demanded money. The clerk says they did not show a weapon, but managed to get away with the store’s registers. No one was injured during the robbery.
Officials say a citizen tip lead authorities to Deaton. After he was arrested, Davis Police picked up Paschen.
Lone Grove Police say they are working with the Carter County Sheriffs Department on another case. They say Deaton and Paschen are also suspects in another robbery in Springer – also on Thursday night.
