Armed robber gets away with Motel 6 surveillance system

PEARL, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Pearl police are looking for an armed robbery suspect who punched a clerk in the face and stole the business' DVR surveillance system.

The crime happened around 3:45 Monday morning at the Motel 6 on Pearson Road.

Pearl Police Captain Brian McGairty says the man used his fist to punch the female clerk to the floor.

He told her to stay down or else he'd kill her.

The suspect allegedly used a black backpack to get away with an undisclosed amount of cash from the register and the business office.

Authorities reported that a second person helped the man get away, possibly in a red or dark maroon Toyota or Nissan car.

Six weeks ago, a similar incident occurred at the same Motel 6.
