Deputies apprehended two suspects who allegedly robbed a local storeowner at gunpoint last weekend.
Alphonso Ray Jr. and Quarre Figures were both charged with armed robbery in connection to the Yazoo City case.
Terry Gann, chief investigator with the Yazoo County Sheriff’s Department, said the armed robbery occurred last Saturday at Gateway Express convenience store on Broadway.
“The suspects robbed the store owner at gunpoint,” Gann said. “They fled on foot, and deputies were able to apprehend one suspect. It wasn’t long before the second suspect was also apprehended by deputies and a police officer. The money and a weapon were also recovered by deputies.”
