HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The Family Dollar on Edwards Street in Hattiesburg was robbed by an armed suspect Tuesday morning, but the suspect didn't make it far.

Hattiesburg Police Department spokesman Ryan Moore said the robbery happened around 11 a.m. Clifton Siggers, 45, was arrested and charged with one count of armed robbery.
