Jackson Bookstore Robbed, Suspect in Custody

Police have a suspect in custody after he allegedly robbed a Jackson bookstore.

The suspect, a 48-year-old Jackson man, demanded money from the cash register at the store located on 113 E. Cortland St. Police say he threatened that he had a weapon but never showed one.

The suspect then broke the cash register and took the money before escaping on foot. He was captured shortly thereafter and the money was recovered.

He will be arraigned Monday.
