Crime Stock

TUPELO – Police are searching for a small gray sedan with Chickasaw County license plates and its occupants in connection with a Tuesday afternoon armed robbery in West Tupelo.

About 12:20 p.m., a Ruth Street resident was working in his yard when he was called over to speak to the occupants of a car stopped in the street. When he reached the car, an assailant in the back seat of the car pulled a black handgun and demanded his cash from his wallet, said Tupelo Police Capt. Rusty Haynes.

The robbers took the money and fled. The victim was not injured.

Based on the description, police believe the car is a gray Nissan Sentra with a Chickasaw County license plate, CHC 993, Haynes said.

Anyone with information about the robbery is encouraged to call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-773-8477.

    If they already have the license plate number, they could actually run it through the system and go over their house with a warrant, and arrest these criminals with the crime. How hard could that be?

      Stolen car, undoubtedly. Wouldn’t want to arrest Grandma Naomi in the nursing home just because her wayward grandson went joyriding and robbing.

      Dude, lay off the weed.
