Last week Westford Police arrested Tammy M. Perry, Diana M. Frechette, and Shane L. Perry, all of Lowell, in connection with the robbery. The three face multiple charges.

The Brookside Convenience store at 60 Brookside Road was robbed with two customers inside the store and a clerk at the register. Two male suspects entered the store at 10:40 a.m. in late January wearing masks and gloves, according to police. The first suspect pointed a semi-automatic pistol at the clerk and the two customers, police stated. The second suspect had a knife.
