The Picayune Police Department is actively searching for a suspect wanted in connection with last week’s armed robbery at the Sunflower grocery store on Palestine Road.
Through investigation, Clifton Mitchell, 26, of 178 Ruston Rd., Carriere, has been identified as the suspect, said Jeremy Magri, assistant to the chief of police.
Mitchell threatened the cashier at the store with a knife to give him an undetermined amount of money from the cash drawer.
Mitchell fled out of the front door after receiving the money, said Magri.
Mitchell was last seen wearing a camouflage hat, a green shirt and blue shorts as he fled the scene of the robbery, said Magri.
