BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Police have arrested a Slidell man they believe robbed a Brinks Security truck driver Wednesday afternoon in Biloxi. It happened near the Hobby Lobby on Pass Road.  

Ralph Ray Regis, 37, is charged with Armed Robbery.

According to investigators, the Brinks guard had just completed a pickup when a man approached him with a handgun, demanding money. The robber told the guard to lie on the floor, while he took the Brinks bag filled with cash and checks. The man ran out the front door of the store and left the parking lot in a gray vehicle.

A patrol officer noticed the car leaving and tried to stop it. After a short chase, the robber jumped out of the vehicle and ran away behind several home on Westview Avenue. Officers eventually caught a man they believe is to blame.

Ralph Ray Regis is being held at the Harrison County Adult Detention Center under a $250,000 bond.

At the same time, two other suspects were being held by police just down the road. But police said that was a completely separate incident.
