Arrest made in Jackson County armed robbery

An arrest has been made following an armed robbery that happened at a gas station in the St. Andrews community on Friday.

Sheriff Mike Ezell says 32-year-old Alfonzo Taylor was seen Friday night at a Biloxi casino wearing the same clothes he had on when he allegedly went into the Clark Oil Gas Station with a handgun.

Investigators later arrested him at his Ocean Springs home.

Taylor is charged with armed robbery. He is held without bond, pending an initial court hearing.

Biloxi and Ocean Springs police assisted in the arrest. The investigation is ongoing and the sheriff says more arrests are possible.
