Alton Police have made two arrests in a robbery that is nearly a year old. The Milk Store on Milton Road was held up by two men wearing bandanna's over their faces last March. Charged with armed robbery are 23-year-old Joey L. Holoman (pictured, bottom) of the 3800 block of Coronado Drive and 52-year-old Eugene L. Tillman (pictured, top) of the 1000 block of Alton Pointe.
Both in custody and are accused of taking property from The Milk Store, with the use of a weapon. The owner says they entered the store at closing time last March and demanded money. One was armed with a handgun and the men escaped on foot but not before the owner fought back. Holoman's bond was set at $100,000, while Tillman's is $150,000.
