Just after 2 a.m. Sunday morning, Pascagoula Police Department responded to a report of armed robbery at an Exxon Station off Denny Avenue. Shortly after, Gautier Police received information an armed robbery at the Purple Cow on Highway 90, involving the same suspect.

Officials say they then spotted the suspect's vehicle on Highway 90. When the driver refused to stop, officers followed the vehicle on a high-speed chase Westbound through Ocean Springs.

The chase continued across the Ocean Springs-Biloxi bridge and ended when the vehicle drove over stop sticks that officers had placed on the road.

The driver was 26-year-old Tiffany Kellum of Pascagoula. She was arrested and charged through Gautier with Felony-Evading Police and pending other charges through both agencies.

Kellum's passenger, 26-year-old Robert Wayne Sumner of Pascagoula, was also arrested. He was charged with two counts of Armed Robbery.

Officials say no one was injured in the robberies. Kellum and Sumner are both being held in Jackson County Adult Detention Center, awaiting an initial appearance.
