RIDGELAND, Miss. (WJTV) — Ridgeland police arrested two people in connection with a robbery Tuesday.

Lt. Brian Myers said Denzel Curtis Watson and Francesco Jaazinah McKight-Smith are charged with strong armed robbery. The crime happened at Mac’s Fresh Market on Highway 51 in Ridgeland.

Police said one of the suspects took money out of the register while it was open. The other one was waiting in the getaway car outside the store. We’re told the staff jumped on the suspect that took the money out of the cash register. That’s when the other suspect came inside to try to help.

He walked out of the store and was taken into custody in the parking lot by officers that were responding.
