Sharron Mitchell stops her son, Roy Mitchell, of Flowood, MS, as he was about to rob the D’s One Stop Food Mart in Brandon, MS, Tuesday. He tried to rob the store by waving what turned out to be a toy gun at the clerk while paying for a bag of Doritos. Before he could make off with the store’s cash, his mother, who had followed him into the store, intervened and grabbed the gun from his hands, ABC News reports.
Roy Mitchell was arrested and is being held on $300,000 bond, for one charge of attempted armed robbery. Sharron Mitchell should be applauded for intervening in her son’s nefarious deed. Thank you Sharron Mitchell for standing up for that store owner at the expense of turning your son.
