According to the Probable Cause Statement obtained from the Jackson County Prosecutors Office, June 26th at approximately 3:53 p.m. Jackson County Sheriff’s Dispatch received a report of a robbery in progress with shots fired. Upon arrival at the residence officers were informed that “three black makes just robbed them and left out of the back, basement door traveling on foot eastbound towards 13th Ave. N.”
The victims stated that three black males entered thru the basement door with a gun drawn. They demanded the first victim give them everything. Other occupants of the house were gathered into the basement and their hands bound with duct tape. The suspects continually demanded all the plants and the victim had to show them that there were no plants. At this time the suspects grabbed everything else they had gathered, fired a shot into a wall and ran out the door.
The victim was able to identify Mr. Lowery who had a t-shirt over his head, by his voice and body build as he had known him for over six years. The victims gave Greenwood Police permission to search the residence and collect evidence. Among other items recovered were a spent 40 S&W shell casing and a fragmented bullet.
With the assistance of the Lee’s Summit Police Department, Lowery was apprehended. He indicated he did not have the gun and only knew the first names of the other two suspects. He also stated he thought they were going to hang out and had no prior knowledge of the intent to rob the victims.
