2 Charged in Armed Robbery in Thompson

Two Massachusetts men have been arrested in connection with an armed robbery at Bud Country Store in Thompson in September.

Police said they responded to Bud Country Store, at 759 Quinabaug Road, at 4:50 p.m. on Sept. 13 and found out that a man who was wearing a red bandanna over his face approached the counter, pulled a black firearm and demanded money from the clerk.

Then he reached over the counter, took an undisclosed amount of money from the register and ran to a silver sedan, with Massachusetts registration plates, parked in a nearby parking lot.
The sedan then headed toward Dudley, Massachusetts.

Police said the robber was wearing a black sweatshirt with a skull emblem on the front, dark baggy sweatpants and black sneakers.

William Barr, 26, of Webster, Massachusetts, and Christopher Julian, 23, of Dudley, Massachusetts, have both been arrested.

Barr was charged with sixth-degree larceny and first-degree conspiracy to commit robbery.

On Monday, police arrested Julian and charged him with first-degree robbery and sixth-degree larceny.
