GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

Two people face armed robbery charges in a string of crimes in Gulfport. Wednesday, Gulfport police arrested Cooper Ferretti, 23, and Grace Hayes, 17. Ferretti is charged with three counts of armed robbery, Hayes faces one count of armed robbery.

The arrests follow a robbery complaint at the Dollar General store on Creosote Road Tuesday. Police say the store reported a suspect wielding a knife took an undisclosed amount of money. The investigation led police to Ferretti.

Police believe he was involved in two similar armed robberies, at the Pizza Hut on Three Rivers Road. That restaurant was robbed on September 6 and again on October 20.

Ferretti and Hayes were arrested without incident and are in the Harrison County Adult Detention Center. Judge Melvin Ray set a $150,000 bond for Ferretti and a $25,000 bond for Hayes.
