JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - Jackson Police are investigating a Tuesday night armed robbery at a discount store. The robbery happened at the Family Dollar Store at 4747 Clinton Boulevard.
The spokesperson for Jackson Police, officer Colendula Green, said a man wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt entered the store with a gun. He proceeded to jump over the counter prompting the clerk to run to the back of the store.
As a customer at the counter stood by, the suspected thief grabbed the entire cash register and took off with it out of the store. Police tell WLBT that the man got into a cream or silver colored vehicle and was last seen traveling south on Dixon Road.
