Police: Alleged robber robbed of loot after holdup

HandcuffsMCCOMB, Mississippi (AP) — McComb police say a man accused of robbing a convenience store told investigators that people he knew had robbed him of the stolen cigarettes and cash.

Detective Shannon Sullivan says an investigator recognized 27-year-old Wallace Tompson from surveillance video and arrested him.

He tells the Enterprise-Journal that when asked about the stolen items, Tompson said he’d been held up, and named two people. Sullivan says one was found with the stolen items, and the gun used at the store.

Sullivan says that pistol leads investigators to think all three may have planned the store holdup.

He says 40-year-old Darrick Bolden was arrested on a robbery charge, and police want 29-year-old Eric Carroll on the same charge.

An online database had no phone numbers for any of them. It was not clear whether they had attorneys who could comment.
