COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) – Columbus police say he was caught on tape Wednesday night, and then about 6:15 Thursday (4-4) evening, he was taken into custody.
18 year old Quincy Lashawn Holmes of Brooksville faces charges in connection with the armed robbery of M & M Grocery.
He was arrested at a traffic stop on Main Street in East Columbus.
Apparently somebody got a good look at his vehicle Wednesday night.

He reportedly had a gun, and a bandanna pulled over his face, and demanded cash.
Police say he ransacked the cash register and cigarette display.
They think he made off with cash at smokes.
