Still, we've got to knock you some style points. What kind of urban street thugs arrange for a drug deal at the suburban parking lot of a Bass Pro Shop? Gee whiz, guys. We hope you at least picked yourselves up some clearance-item duck books while you were there. They were quite a steal.
Oh, and speaking of steals, that's what St. Charles police say you were attempting to do December 24 when you met Brandon Joyce on the parking lot that cold, wintry night.
But the suspects had other ideas. They planned to rob Joyce. According to reports, Cory Brooks and the fourth suspect hopped in Jacobs vehicle and went with him to an ATM. They then drove to the Bass Pro Shop where the transaction was to occur. Instead, someone shot Joyce in the head with a large-caliber revolver. He died yesterday morning.
Court records show that Cory Jermaine Brooks pleaded guilty in 2009 to burglary and felony theft. His brother, Tory Tremaine Brooks, has a longer rap sheet, pleading guilty over the past three years to such crimes as tampering with a motor vehicle, forgery, burglary and felony theft, according to court records.
