FERGUSON, MO (KPLR) – The surveillance tapes allegedly showing Michael Brown robbing a Ferguson market. Tonight for the first time, the owners are speaking out through an attorney about the surveillance video.
The owner of the store dispute the claim that they or an employee called 911, saying a customer inside the store made the call. They also say St. Louis County issues the warrants for the hard drive of surveillance video Friday.
When asked how Ferguson police ended up with the video that the Ferguson police chief issued Friday morning. The attorney said during the course of Ferguson's investigation they came to the store and asked to review the tape. But it wasn’t until Friday that St. Louis County investigators issued a warrant for the video many of you have already seen.
The attorney for the owners of the store says the owners do not wish to be wrapped up in the middle of this. They are simply complying with police orders and again the attorney wanted to emphasize the 911 call did not come from the owners or an employee.
The attorney says this market has been in the community for a long time and they hope to continue serving this community.
