A handcuffed Robbie J. Brewer, 45 of Hardin, sits on the edge of a patrol vehicle on Saturday as he waits for a ride to the Liberty County Jail. He is accused of attempting to rob an off-duty Liberty County sheriff's captain.

A Hardin man is facing a robbery charge after he reportedly attempted to rob an off-duty Liberty County sheriff’s captain. The incident took place around 4 p.m. on Saturday at the Hull Drive-In Grocery store on FM 770 just south of FM 834.

According to LCSO Patrol Sgt. Bubba Pearson, Liberty County Sheriff’s Captain Billy Knox was putting fuel in his side-by-side ATV when he was approached by Robbie Jay Brewer, 45, who lives in the Knights Forest area of Hardin.

The Hull Drive-In Grocery was the scene of an alleged robbery attempt of an off-duty Liberty County sheriff’s captain on Saturday. A Hardin man is facing a robbery charge.

Brewer reportedly approached Knox and demanded his wallet and money. When Knox resisted the robbery, a struggle ensued when Brewer became aggressive. Knox reportedly overpowered Brewer and called for the store owner to call 911. No injuries were reported for Knox or Brewer.

Knox held Brewer at the scene until deputies arrived to assist him. Brewer was formally arrested and transported to the Liberty County Jail.

Brewer is charged with second-degree robbery, which carries a penalty of up to 20 years in a state prison and a fine up to $10,000, if convicted. Brewer was not carrying a weapon at the time of the robbery attempt, authorities say.

  2. Wow, looks like Amanda leeann Gonzales is upset her dealer got popped with that response. That made absolutely no sense. I’ve had more coherent conversations with acid freaks. I knew Robbie (jelly legs)

  3. God save his soul and clean him up before it’s too late, because if he had died in all this he would have been lost and in hell there is no appeal No! coming out, so please! Friend repent and ask Jesus to be your Lord and savior. He loves you that’s the reason you are alive today.❤ God loves you Brewer, John 3:16.

  4. That’s my cousin, my momma, his aunt died the day before. Some of us are handling her death harder than others. I hate to see my family falling apart like is has been these day’s following my momma’s death. But the family members that watched the 3 year battle with her lung, brain, heart, liver, adrenal gland, lymph nodes, kidney, bone cancer come to a violent end as a stroke caused by the 3 brain tumors and that once vibrant woman give up as she couldn’t speak any longer. Watching her locked inside her own head with so much to say and no way to say it. For her to starve herself until the end. I myself turned to alcohol. Other family to marijuana , and a few went for harder thing’s. Instead of gossiping or condemning each other, why not leave the hate behind, let’s try something different, pray for them/us, rais them up in GOD’S name, ask the son Jesus to take their/our hand and to carry us until the spirit light’s our way and fills our life so that one day we can walk beside Jesus… Thing’s affect each of us differently, don’t be so fast to cast each other to the darkness when the light is hard enough to find in this world…

    • That idiot is a career criminal. I remember when he crashed a motorcycle in knights forest and almost died. This idiot will never learn.
