Deputies with the Walker County Sheriff's Office arrested two suspects who robbed a Houston County convenience store twice within the last week.

Chief Deputy G.P. Shearer of the Houston County Sheriff's Office said that the two men. Landon Murdoch, 17, and Taylor Matar, 20, were picked up in Walker County on Monday. Each man was charged with two first-degree felony aggravated assault charges.
