Popeye's Robbed

JPD issued the following statement last night.

Jackson Police are investigating a business robbery that occurred earlier this evening.  It happened just after 8:00 pm. 

Officers responded to the Popeye’s located in the 5300 block of Interstate 55 North.  There, officers learned that an armed black male wearing dark clothing and a dark colored, hooded coat entered the business demanding money.  The suspect took an undetermined amount of cash before fleeing north on foot. 

Investigators are working to review the  surveillance footage.  No injuries were reported. 

Anyone with information about this robbery is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 601-355-TIPS(8477).  A cash reward is possible if the information leads to an arrest. 

Kingfish note: Damn. Went there three years ago.  Could've been me.

Never visit the west side of I-55. The difference between the east side and west side of I-55 is amazing. Unreal.

Hardly anybody uses cash any more at these places. Debit and credit cards for a 3 piece. Not smart consumers but definitely a stupid crook. Dude should have at least got some biscuits.

'fleeing north' you say. That's odd.

Maybe Waffle House and Popeyes can meet with Jackson officials. Would be interesting if they get short shrift like Greenbrook Flowers.

Pistol looks like a Glock. How can these misanthrope afford such weapons. I've been saving for 5 years for one. Good Grief.

Not likely he saved up or paid for it......probably got it on the five finger discount.

@Cousin Eddie

His was likely somebody's "Truck Gun" pilfered from the unlocked cab of brand new lifted F-350 King Ranch that was parked in an upper class Flowood neighborhood.

Also could've belonged to some high school girl's dad. I've heard stories that these guys get themselves invited into a naive girl's home and they always excuse themselves to the father's nightstand and the mother's jewelry box before helping them self to the daughter chastity.

I heard he was chicken to show his face.

Time to ban hooded sweatshirts. They are involved in more crimes than guns.

There's always two sides to a story. Hehe. 2 sides. Get it? I win!

Round up the usual suspects. As they say on Live PD, "Bravo Mike," 20-25 years of age...

I live near there. I'll have to go in later tonight and show my support for the community. It's a damn shame, I'm so grateful no one was hurt.

He was probably asked to pull forward and they will bring your money out in 5-10 minutes

Popeyes food has just gone to crap over the years. Used to have the best breakfasts, great fried livers and chicken. When they merged with Church's and sold out to an investment firm it went to hell. Couple months ago got a 3 piece chicken strip and it was a tiny sliver of chicken and almost all breading. RIP Al Copeland.

Is this location near Cowboy Maloney's?

I had no idea Popeye's had 'merged with church's'. You sure about that?

Hermit King said...

Yes AFC Enterprises owned Church's, Popeye's, and Cinnabon before selling to Crescent Capital Investments, a Bahraini company that complies with Sharia Law.
Chicken Empire

Did you also know Pepsi owned Taco Bell, KFC, and Pizza Hut for a time?

For all you people blaming hoodies for crime, you are wrong!!!...if you ever work a Hospital ER shift, you will discover that "I was just minding my own business" is the most Dangerous thing you can do, because almost all patients brought in due to violence...shootings, stabbings, beatings...when asked what happened, were just "minding their own business"

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease.
