The holdup happened Wednesday morning on Liberty Street.
Police followed footprints in the snow from the crime scene to a house on Gould Street, where they waited for hours in frigid weather before entering the building.
Timothy Ellis and Justin Ellis were arrested a few hours later at their home near the crime scene, after police followed footprints to a house on Gould Street and waited outside in frigid weather.
