VICKSBURG, Miss. (WJTV) — Vicksburg Polie are investigating a robbery that happened at the Dollar General over the weekend. Two people are in custody, including one of the employees.

Vicksburg Police said 18-year-old Willie Montrell Clark and 24-year-old Shera Chentral White are facing charges.

Investigators said they went to the store located on Clay Street on Sunday to respond to the crime.
