Grog Shop Robbed at Gunpoint
Homer Police report that an armed robbery occurred at 10:48 p.m. Thursday night at the Grog Shop in downtown Homer. According to a news release Friday, the suspect was a white male, wearing a mask. He took an undisclosed amount of cash before fleeing the scene on foot.
The Grog Shop was the scene of another armed robbery about a year ago. In that case, 50-year-old John Allen Mumey was charged with First Degree Robbery. Police believe Mumey may have had a homemade bomb in his possession during that crime.
Anyone with information about this case is encouraged to call the Homer Police Department at 235-3150.
