Brothers accused of gunpoint drug rip

Two brothers are accused of robbing a man at gunpoint after arranging a drug deal in a grocery store parking lot.

Jason D. Pegram, 30, and Kyle E. Pegram, 29, are in jail on robbery charges after they were arrested Sunday after a man told police he'd been robbed in the Fred Meyer parking lot at 400 S. Thor St. about 8:25 p.m.

Pegram told police he gave the victim a bag of white flour instead of drugs and received $180, but police believe he also threatened the victim with a gun.

Police searched an apartment at 803 E. Hartson Ave., where Jason Pegram lives with his mother. Police recovered a black BB gun from the home, which they say resembles a semi-automatic handgun.

Kyle Pegram denied involvement, but police say they developed information that connected him to the crime.

The brothers remain in jail on first-degree robbery charges.
