On Sunday, June 24, at 11:35am, Picayune Police Department officers were dispatched to a local car wash facility on Hwy 11 in reference to an armed robbery of a person, according to Assistant Police Chief Jeremy Magri.
Upon arrival, the victim told the officers that he had pulled into a stall to wash his vehicle, got out of the vehicle to begin washing it when a white male carrying a sawed-off shotgun approached him and demanded his personal property. The victim stated that, at this time, another white male walked into the stall holding a pistol by his waist making the same demand to the victim (demanding his personal property).
Magri stated that the victim handed over a money clip that contained several miscellaneous cards and approximately $120.00 in U.S. currency. Both suspects then ran toward and got into a silver or gray newer model 4 door car believed to be a Nissan which was being driven by a white female. The vehicle fled the scene and headed north on Hwy 11 according to Magri.

The other male suspect was described as being short and skinny with blonde hair with a short fade haircut.
