Bonds set for Shannon armed robbery suspects
SHANNON – Bond was set at $250,000 each for four suspects arraigned Tuesday in connection with the armed robbery of the Dollar General in Shannon last week.
Bobby Sanders Jr., 18, of Shannon, and Rakeem Q. Bogan, 18, of Okolona, were each charged with armed robbery in the Thursday night incident. Two juveniles, Chavis Dilworth, 17, of Shannon, and Jarquaveues Smith, 17, of Shannon, were charged with armed robbery as adults.
Bonds were set in Lee County Justice Court on Tuesday morning.
Tupelo police investigators would not say if the Shannon suspects were suspected in a similar Dollar General robbery in Tupelo on Sunday.
Shannon Police Chief Desiree Kirshner said three of the suspects were identified on the Dollar General surveillance video when she said they entered the store earlier in the day Thursday to look around.
“We recognized one of them and went to question him,” she said. “We could match up the others because they didn’t change shoes and a few other clothing items.”
The Dollar General clerk told police approximately $600 was taken from the register, and most of it was recovered. A Tupelo Police K9 found some of the money next to a mask Thursday night near the greenhouses across the street from the Dollar General store.
Kirshner alleged two of the suspects entered the store wearing ski masks shortly before 10 p.m., one with a gun, and got money while the other two were waiting in a vehicle near the greenhouses.
Tupelo police still are searching for two suspects in the Sunday armed robbery in Tupelo. Police said they entered the store on McCullough Boulevard on Saturday around 10 p.m. and fled with an undetermined amount of money.
Anyone with information can call Tupelo Police at (662) 841-6491 or Crime Stoppers of Northeast Mississippi at (800) 773-8477.
