This week, Crime Stoppers needs help to locate an armed robber.

The robber is described as a 5-foot, 10-inch black man weighing between 180 and 190 pounds. He was wearing an orange toboggan and black clothing.

Anyone who knows the identity of the Houston Express Shop robber is asked to call Crime Stoppers of Northeast Mississippi at 1-800-773-TIPS.
