GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

A Gulfport teen remains behind bars after he allegedly attempted to rob the Nic Nac Grocery Store on Three Rivers Road on Monday. Gulfport Police Sgt. Damon McDaniel said police responded to the call around 5:45 p.m.

McDaniel said investigators found that Enrique Deyon Moore, 19, had entered the business and started an argument with the cashier. Authorities said Moore became belligerent and tried to steal the cash register but was unsuccessful.

McDaniel said Moore fled the area on foot after the failed robbery attempt. Officials said police searched the area and apprehended Moore with the help of a K9 unit.

Moore is being held at the Harrison County Adult Detention Facility on a $100,000 bond. McDaniel said the investigation is ongoing.
