Investigators continue to make progress in last month’s armed robbery case of the Dollar General store in Benton.
Terry Gann, chief investigator with the Yazoo County Sheriff’s Department, said a warrant will soon be issued for a suspect who is currently being held in a Holmes County jail.
“Our suspect just pleaded guilty to robbing a Dollar General store in Holmes County,” Gann said. “We will also have other arrests coming in connection to the case.”
Jordan Perry, 23, was charged with armed robbery last month in the case.
The Dollar General store on Highway 16 in Benton was robbed mid-January.
“Three men came inside the store and robbed it at gunpoint,” Gann said. “There was also a get-away driver outside.”
Gann said Perry was arrested within a couple of hours after the robbery thanks to assistance from witnesses.
