Hattiesburg armed robbery suspect in custody

This is a news release from the Hattiesburg Police Department

Officers were dispatched to a local gas station Monday morning in reference to an armed robbery call.

When officers arrived, a clerk advised the police that a male with a bandana around his face held the clerk at gunpoint.
