JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The Dollar General on Briarwood Drive was robbed Friday just after noon.

Shortly after 12:30 p.m., officers responded to an in-progress robbery of the Dollar General.  Once they arrived, two suspects were seen running away from the store.

Both suspects were captured after a brief chase.

Officers canvassed the area and recovered evidence that included items believed to have been taken from customers who were also robbed.  It later appeared that officers arrived so quickly that the suspects were not able to take any cash belonging to the business.  

Store surveillance captured the incident which corroborated the information officers were provided. 

Both suspects are being transported for questioning and are facing three counts of armed robbery of an individual and one count of attempted armed robbery of a business. 

Investigators are also attempting to determine if both suspects are responsible for another recent business robbery that occurred earlier Friday morning.
