GREENVILLE — The Hunt County grand jury has cleared three suspects, including a Dallas man, of aggravated robbery charges connected to a reported home invasion robbery near Commerce in February.

Brandon Andre Bowles, 21, was arrested in College Station in July and was brought to the Hunt County Jail, where he was charged with four counts of aggravated robbery.

Following Friday’s session, the grand jury returned “no bills” naming Bowles and two other individuals who had not yet been arrested on the aggravated robbery counts.

A “no bill” is issued when the grand jury determines its investigation did not find sufficient evidence to issue an indictment

On February 28, the Hunt County Sheriff’s Office received a call of a possible aggravated robbery on FM 2874 outside of Commerce.

The victims stated that three black males entered the residence armed with two shotguns and a pistol. The victims stated that two of the suspects were wearing masks and one was not.

All victims were told to get on the floor or they would be shot.

Money was taken during the robbery, but no injuries were reported.
