Leonard Brown, 28, now faces charges in an armed robbery in Shannon last week.

Brown, who is from Attala County, was formally charged Wednesday with armed robbery and grand larceny, Shannon Police Chief Desirae Kerschner.

Authorities say Brown used a gun and crowbar to forcing the clerk to open an ATM at the Hilltop Grocery Store on Highway 45 last Friday night around 7.

Brown’s bond was set at $500,000 by a municipal court judge.

Brown is also charged in a shooting in Tupelo later that evening. Click here for information on that story.
