Two teens from Boring are behind bars accused of the armed robbery of a Gresham convenience store in June.

A Multnomah County Grand Jury on July 27 indicted Nicholas David Boatright, 18, and Adam William Reed, 17, both of Boring, on accusations of first-degree burglary and unlawful use of a weapon, as well as Measure 11 charges of second-degree kidnapping, first-degree robbery and two counts of second-degree robbery, said Officer John Rasmussen, Gresham police spokesman.

Gresham police early June 2 responded to a panic alarm at 7-Eleven, 1016 N.E. Kane Drive, and learned that two unidentified white males - wearing scarves over their faces, hooded sweatshirts and sunglasses - had just robbed the store at gunpoint.

The suspects fled the area with an undisclosed amount of money.

Detectives arrested Boatright on July 22, with Reed being arrested a short time later. Boatright is being held on more than $1 million bail at the Multnomah County Inverness Jail, while Reed is being housed at the Multnomah County Juvenile Detention Hall.

Anyone with more information about the case is encouraged to call the Gresham police tipline at 503-618-2719 or 1-888-989-3505.
