Brandon, MS - It happened around 11:30 a.m. on July 3rd when 22 year-old Roy Mitchell entered D's One Stop Convenience Store on Highway 80 in Brandon.
Mitchell quickly grabbed some Nacho Cheese Doritos and throws them on the counter. He then hands the clerk two dollars to pay for his snack but then things change dramatically.
As she goes to get his change, he goes in his waistband and pulls out a gun. He then points it directly at the clerk and demands all the money in the cash drawer. The cashier doesn't move as if in shock.
Then a case of maternal intervention, Mitchell's mother walks up, grabs the gun and orders him out of the store. He obeys leaving with no cash but, he does get his chips.
As mom tries to explain to the clerk that the gun wasn't real, begging her not to call the law, she leaves and does just the opposite, calling police to the scene. Mitchell and his mother left in a red Oldsmobile. A "Be on the Look Out" went out for the car and a short time later it was stopped by Pelahatchie Police and Mitchell was taken into custody.
Officers found a gun in the vehicle. Turns out it was a fake, a plastic replica made to look like the real thing. Mitchell is facing attempted armed robbery charges in addition to the embarrassment of having surveillance video of a heist attempt shown up on the evening news where you're busted by your own mom.
