LOWELL -- The Belvidere Wine Company on Concord Street was robbed at gunpoint Wednesday night, but within minutes of the crime police found a suspect fitting the description given by the liquor store clerk on Perry Street.
The man, identified as Anthony Perez, 22, of Lowell, had a pile of cash on him, and was caught within 10 feet of several unopened bottles of liquor.
Sgt. Norm Levasseur came through with his gun-sniffing dog, Rosa, and found a .22 caliber handgun in the bushes just 10 feet away.
Police said a witness to the robbery identified Perez as one of three men who had robbed him at about 10:20 p.m.
All that didn't stop Perez from claiming he was innocent as he was being placed in the back of a police van.
He is charged with armed robbery while masked, illegal possession of a firearm, illegal possession of ammunition, and possession of a firearm with an obliterated serial number.
He was also charged with giving police a false name. When officers learned his real identity, they learned he was wanted on six arrest warrants for more minor offenses.
Another suspect in the robbery, identified as Jamal McDougal, 24, of Lowell, was arrested about a block away on Perry Street and charged with armed robbery while masked, police said.
Police were still seeking a third suspect early this morning, and said that man was potentially armed.
There had been three men wearing masks involved in the robbery, and two of them were armed police said. They showed two handguns, and demanded cash before fleeing the store
