CLINTON (WATE) - Four suspects are behind bars after multiple robberies in Anderson County. One man in that group is also believed to be behind a pharmacy robbery in Knoxville.

The four arrested are Curtis Lowe, Brandi Bugg, Gary Lowe and Misty Gurley.

"He came over, stood in line and said, 'If you say one more word, I'll cut your throat.' He said, 'Hit that cash register and I won't hurt you. I'll cut your throat if you don't do it,'" Thomas Gray Jr. said.

Gray is a clerk at Town Talk Market in Clinton. He says Curtis Lowe threatened him with a knife during a robbery, while the other three distracted staff at the shop.

"When I opened up the register, he jumped over and took everything," he said.

Investigators say the same team of thugs targeted a home in Clinton later that night.

They asked to use the phone, then robbed the victims.

Anderson County deputies arrested Gary Lowe, who is out of prison on parole. They also arrested Misty Gurley and Brandy Bugg.

The knife-wielding suspect, Curtis Lowe, was still on the loose until a robbery Monday at the Walgreen's on Clinton Highway in Knoxville. It was that crime that led his arrest.

One more man, Timothy Bush, was arrested with Lowe in the pharmacy crime.

Investigators say Lowe and Bush are homeless.
