A Collins man accused of holding up a Hattiesburg motel has checked into jail.
Covington County deputies caught Derrick Keyes, who allegedly pulled a gun on a clerk at Regency Inn and took off. An all-points bulletin was issued for his Dodge pickup, and Covington deputies stopped it on Highway 49 in Collins.
Authorities say the suspect may have thrown out the gun because only shell casings were found.
Keyes in now in Hattiesburg police custody.
