BROWNSVILLE - Police are looking for two suspects who robbed a Brownsville liquor store at gunpoint on Monday.

Store owner Geoffrey George says he and three employees were doing inventory work at the store on Wilmohr Street just after midnight when a man armed with a gun ordered everyone to the ground. George says the suspect tied them up with duct tape and then loaded boxes of top shelf liquor with another suspect into a vehicle waiting nearby. George said the stolen liquor was worth $69,000.

According to George, the suspects also got away with the cash in the register and the money he and his employees had on them. The entire robbery was caught on camera, and he hopes the video will generate leads.

Anyone with information on the robbery is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
