Investigators want to identify a man caught on camera taking money from a convenience store cash register in the Big Point community, Jackson County Sheriff Mike Ezell said.
Ezell said it’s the second armed robbery to occur in Jackson County within 24 hours.
A man with a gun held up Huntley’s on Mississippi 613 in Escatawpa on Monday afternoon.
A different man walked into Big Point Quick Stop on Mississippi 613 around 3 p.m. Tuesday and told employees he had a weapon, Ezell said.
Then, Ezell said, the man grabbed money from the cash register and left the store heading north in a black Chevrolet Trailblazer with no tag.
The sheriff’s department released surveillance photos of the man so the public can help identify him.
The man is 5-feet 3-inches tall, is heavyset and was wearing a blue shirt, khaki pants, brown shoes and a hat during the robbery.
