CROCKETT, TX (KTRE) -

A Houston County grand jury has indicted two men accused of robbing a convenience store twice within the span of four days in January.

Taylor Matar, 21, of Huntsville, and Landon Murdoch, of Montgomery, are each charged with two counts of aggravated robbery.

Both men are accused of robbing an Austonio Stop store on Jan. 15 and then again on Jan. 19. The owner of the store's security company was in the area the second time and saw the truck leave the store and called it in while he followed the men.

Deputies in Walker County were able to arrest the pair.

If convicted, both men face up to life in prison on the first-degree charges.
