COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) — A bold robbery is caught on tape and Columbus Police, now police have a man in custody.

19-year Quincy Lashawn Holmes was arrested late Thursday evening for armed robbery.

Police say Holmes walked into the convenience store at the corner of 23rd Street South and Bell Avenue just before 10 Wednesday night, asked about buying beer even though he said he was only 18, and left.

He reportedly returned moments later with an apparent gun and a bandanna pulled over his face and demanded cash.

He then ransacked the cash register and cigarettes before leaving with a bag full of both.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Columbus Police Department. Bond has not yet been set.
