Store robbed at gunpoint
By SUE WATSON
A $1,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of a suspect who robbed Dollar General in Potts Camp, according to sheriff Kenny Dickerson.
A black male subject entered the store at 21 Homan Road around 8:24 p.m. on Saturday, June 19, and walked back and forth and talked on a cell phone until about 9:03 p.m., according to the sheriff. Then the suspect forced the clerk, two employees and five other people at gunpoint to lie down in the floor while he took money out of the safe and cash registers, Dickerson said.
The suspect left the store on foot, according to witnesses, and was picked up by two females in a small black car.
“We were able to locate a handgun, and the suspect’s ball cap and shirt across the road from the store in tall grass,” Dickerson said.
Anyone with information is asked to call Marshall County Crime Stoppers (800-729-2169) or Kelly McMillen at the sheriff’s department (662-252-1311). Callers will remain anonymous and their information will be kept strictly confidential.
In a separate incident, a Byhalia man was stabbed multiple times Friday, June 18, at his home by an acquaintance.
Kenneth Lee Bonnacci, 35, of 420 Park Avenue, Omaha, Nebraska, was taken into custody and charged with stabbing a man who lives on Scenic Drive in Byhalia, Dickerson said. The victim was airlifted to the Memphis Med and later released and is recovering from multiple stab wounds to the side and back area.
Bonnacci is being held at the jail on $100,000 bond.
