WEST POINT, Miss. (WTVA) — Police in West Point arrested two men in connection with the recent holdup of a Dollar General store.

Officers identified them as Jamarkus Randle, 20, and Brent Cunningham, 19, and charged them with armed robbery.

Each suspect is free on a $50,000 bond.

Their arrests Wednesday came more than a week after the February 15 robbery of the Dollar General on East Main Street.

One of the robbers could be seen on surveillance video pointing a rifle at the cashier while the other forced a store employee to the front of the store.
